[Haskell-cafe] Data.Map add only if not exist and return true if

I'm looking for a function for Data.Map that will insert a new key and value
into the map if the key doesn't already exist in the map. When the key
already exists, I don't want the value updated in the map. Additionally, I
want to know whether the key/value was inserted or not so that I can return
that fact as a boolean from my function.
I can't work out which function in Data.Map is suitable for this task and I
wanted to avoid two lookups.
