I'm exactly basing on them, but they don't have at least these things:
 - Monad-mutable collections like MArray
 - Instances of something like Assoc for arrays (arrays are
collections in some sense, after all)
 - Treatment for unboxed types (I don't know yet, whether it is
needed; but why do STUArrays have special treatment then?)

It's not that I am in desperate need for these, but making the
already-good collection API even better sounds like fun :)

Actually, it started with me writing a monad-mutable hashtable and
thinking about what its interface should be, so probably I should just
upload the hashtable to hackage as is and look what comes next :)
