Two such examples that I've workd on in the past are the md5
implementation, and the fasta and pidigts benchmarks from the language
shootout.  The first deals with limited integers in a relatively
efficient way, the second does aggressive memoization, and the third
has a silly DSL-like bindings to GMP to do fast arithmetics.
