This is very cool.

Your docs describe a function, cacheSTGroup:

cacheSTGroup :: Int -> STGen a -> STGen a
Given an integral amount of seconds and a group, returns a group
cached for that span of time. Does not cache "misses."

How does this work without breaking referential transparency?
Shouldn't it be in the IO monad if it is time-dependent?
