Any notion of why the change from bool to Word8Array is so incredibly costly?
I realize that sieve is a pretty idio-syncratic benchmark, but I would have
thought that it wouldn't make that much of a difference.
Ah, I get it: it must be that the factor of 8 in space caused us to be too
big for some L1 cache, right?
