I won't be at ICFP, but would like to put in a reminder about
the shabbiness of GHC floating-point output conversion. When I
raised this issue once before, I got the surprising reaction
that speed was more important than accuracy.

@doug: could you point me to the issue ?

i'm actually allocating some of my time over the next year to improving floating point matters in ghc and the standard, and specific issues you can point me to that you've previously articulated would be super helpful :)
