Quoth Oliver Steele on Tuesday, 11 December:
: As someone said earlier, the win for lazy evaluation is when evaluation is
: infinitely deferred.  It doesn't win when all the values end up being used.

I think you overshoot your mark here.  Instruction schedulers make use
of a kind of lazy semantics allatime to avoid pipeline stalls,
misprediction penalties, etc.
