We're not talking about unsafePerformIO either.
The discussion at hand is much simpler. Given a large stream of data, how should you style your code so that it's easy to reason about the space usage? This is an important question in every programming language I've ever used. Also, IO need not enter the discussion except that in darcs the streams of data come from the disk. I think moving the discussion to haskell-cafe was a mistake. I said what I said in a very specific context (that of the darcs developers mailing list), which is likely no longer clear.
Sorry for any distress this has caused you.
