for sake of argument, suppose an enterprising haskell newbie wanted to
code up concurrent b-trees (really b-link trees) in haskell.  if i am
understanding STM correctly, it will NOT help in any way with the
implementation, because of the IO-intensive nature of the algorithms?
so i will have to resort to the usual games with locks and latches?
