"Could not deduce (MArray (STUArray s) Int (ST s)) from context ()" when applying runST

Would be used like this:

    uniquePermutations xs = runST $ strictToLazyST $ (uniquePermutationsST

After also swapping `runST` to the lazy version, it compiles and runs. Thank

Hmm. Have you seen the strictToLazyST function?
