I am not quite sure what you mean with a list-like interface.  NDP/DPH- 
style arrays are exactly like Haskell lists, but restricted to finite  
structures and with a more eager evaluation strategy.  The syntactic  
sugar is like lists, just with colons thrown in (eg, [:1,2,3:] instead  
of [1,2,3]) and the Prelude functions have the same names as the list  
functions, just with a suffix P (eg, mapP instead of map).
