This looks quite nice; good work Milan!!!

As an aside, Alex Mason and I are discussing the possibility of taking
advantage of AusHack *shameless plug* to write some kind of classes
for the different types of containers with a hierarchy.  I know about
ListLike, but there doesn't seem to be any applicable classes for
generic containers (i.e. the abstract API of a Set; something like
ListLike would then be an extension on it) and for lookup data
structures (Map k a, [(k, a)], etc.).
