Yes, as elaborated in my reply to gbreed, or I wouldn't
have made the claim in the first place.
I noticed another difference between my benchmarks
and gbreed's and possibly yours: he definitely and possibly
you include generating the list data in the run time while I
generate the list data before measuring the effect of the
construct in question.
FWIW, when I run YOUR tests on my machine (with data
generation factored out), I get different results:
Lambda again comes out first, though list comp beats
for loop by a nose for second place.
