I have a class defined to abstract the various Get monads, i.e. you
can write generic code which will work over a strict get, or an
incremental (continuation based) get.

I don't have the same for put yet. The trick is to make it so that it
doesn't end up with any runtime cost. dons would not be happy if I
took his highly tuned binary library and made it slow :)
