Point taken, thanks.
My question, though, is not as much about how I speed up my program,
as it is about the behaviour of the ReaderT monad transformer. There
is something I do not understand about it, namely, why does such a
small change in the code change the behaviour so much.

> fib' n = fib (n - 1) + fib (n - 2)
