    Anyway, because of the undesirable optimization, any code which allocates and then writes to a buffer should definitely not use accursedUnutterablePerformIO. This was the bug in the first and second, and last examples in accursedUnutterablePerformIO's "trail of destruction".

    Apparently it's not very optimized though, as you pointed out yourself:

    If you need fast Double rendering you can get a significant improvement by using double-conversion or the Ryu branch of bytestring. Again, you'd expect that "how to show a floating-point number quickly" would be a solved problem, but it's not.

    OverloadedStrings has a bad ByteString instance and should indeed be avoided:

    I'm trying to iron out API discrepancies between flavours of ByteString in, any help would be much appreciated.
