it's one of C idioms. probably, you don't have enough C experience to
understand it :)

result is that currently C code rewritten in Haskell becomes much
larger and less readable. if you think that readIORef is more
readable than *, and x<-readioref v; writeioref v (x+1) is more
readable than ++  - it's up to you :)
