Re: functional languages ill-suited for large programs?

Has anyone ever tried to make a purely functional, lazy language
implementation in which _every_ function is implicitly cached?  The
compiler optimization shifts in that case from "when should F be
cached" to "when is clearly not worth bothering caching F" which is an
easier (but still open-ended) problem.
