I know the question wasn't directed at me, but I run an Athlon 800MHz 
box, and ghc compiled darcs at a rate of 1 source file every 45 to 60 
seconds.  That's a rediculous amount of time to spend on a single source 
file, considering how small most of them are.  The executable created by 
ghc isn't exactly fast either.

If I were to spend the time to learn a functional programming language, 
ocaml would be my choice.
