that would be even better of course! an O(0) solution, at least for me ;) let me
know if i can be of any help (e.g. in testing). i suppose uvector-algorithms
would also need to be ported to vector, then.

i've been using the library for wavelet transforms, matching pursuits and the
like, and while my implementations are not heavily optimized, they perform
reasonably well (no benchmarking done yet, though). the key arguments for using
vector instead of uvector were the cleaner interface and Data.Vector.Storable
for interfacing with foreign libraries (such as fftw, through the fft package).
