I removed the following:

NB. do not do this if the expression on the right of $! is a variable - that just wastes effort, because it does not eliminate a suspension. The only reason to do this would be if you were eliminating a space leak.

because

test = let
  x = undefined
  in (const 0) $! x

yields exception and substituting ($) for ($!) yields 0. So ($!) does eliminate a suspension. --beroal 16:58, 16 June 2010 (UTC)
