Higher calling: Revenge of the functional languages

At midnight June 28 GMT, the International Conference on Functional Programming (ICFP) will post the next challenge in its annual programming contest.
Teams from around the world will be given 72 hours (or 24 hours if they pick the lightning round) to write software for the specified task. The goal
of the yearly contests is to show what the organizers believe is the superiority of functional languages over the imperative languages more widely in
use today.
