+    A library that performs fast, accurate conversion between double
+    precision floating point and text.
+    .
+    This library is implemented as bindings to the C++
+    @double-conversion@ library written by Florian Loitsch at Google:
+    <http://code.google.com/p/double-conversion/>.
+    .
+    The 'Text' versions of these functions are about 30 times faster
+    than the default 'show' implementation for the 'Double' type.
+    .
+    The 'ByteString' versions are /slower/ than the 'Text' versions;
+    roughly half the speed.  (This seems to be due to the cost of
+    allocating 'ByteString' values via @malloc@.)
+    .
+    As a final note, be aware that the @bytestring-show@ package is
+    about 50% slower than simply using 'show'.
