Hi all,

For a while now I've been working on understanding GHC's STM implementation
and I finally have something to share.  I've written a commentary on the
implementation which can be found here:

The source is here:

It still could use a bit of polish and I would love to hear about any
missing details, confusion, or misunderstandings.  My goal in writing this
was to fill in the gap found here  I happy to
have it live where it is most appropriate.  If anyone has opinions on that,
let me know.

Any comments are welcome, it may be easiest to just comment on the source
directly on Github, but I will, of course, take feedback in any form.
