When I met with Don Stewart last week, I told him I was hoping we could sit
down and sketch a plan to evaluating Oleg's new iteratee based IO for darcs
at the hacking sprint.  It wouldn't be the sort of algorithmic improvement
we need for annotate, but it could help alleviate some of the overall
performance problems.

I'm also still wondering what the previously discussed optimization to
annotate is that David mentioned in this thread:

I asked for clarification back in August but no one replied.  Where is this
well known solution documented?
