Oh, I should also say that I mean no disrespect to the GHC developers,
the only reason I can use simple strictness annotations instead of
explicit unboxed types is their sweet strictness analyzer, the only
reason I can use more readable 'do' syntax rather than `thenM` style
monadic code is their sweet implementation of classes. GHC is great
code and the papers that came out of its implementation were the
inspiration for most parts of jhc. :)
