2. Does anybody know how to actually read GHC's Core output anyway?
There is one different from standard Haskell I am aware of. In Core,
case x of _ -> 1 will evaluate x, in Haskell it won't. Other than
that, its just Haskell, but without pattern matching and only cases -
hence the rather high number of cases.
Well, 'let's too, which bind either unlifted or lifted values.
If they're binding lifted things, that's a thunk being allocated.
See, somebody needs to write all this down - in language comprehensible
to people who don't already know what an "unlifed value" is. ;-)
