A While ago I tried to write a Haskell version of John Harrops
(http://www.ffconsultancy.com/free/ray_tracer/languages.html) but the
performance was not very good (the OCaml version I based it on was at
least 10x faster).
I would be happy to contribute my code to the benchmark suite if you are
interested. Perhaps someone can point out obvious speed-ups that I
missed while trying to improve the performance.
