[Haskell-cafe] Functional references

I've discussed the license of data-accessor with it's authors (Luke
Palmer & Henning Thieleman). They are ok with changing it to BSD3. So I
don't think the license will be a reason not to use it.

This sounds like a good plan, but please make sure the result is as free
as GHC, rather than GPL like data-accessor is. It's so simple that it
being GPL just drives people for whom licencing is an issue to write an
alternative rather than consider complying.
