My approach using 'operational' package is equivalent to creating your
own monad.  The beauty of 'operational' is that you don't need to
worry about the pumbling of the monad, you just need to specify what
to do with your operations.

That said, I don't know what 'regions' may do for you that the simple
monad I presented doesn't.  Bas, what are the advantages?  As one
disadvantage, I'd say that using regions sound more complicated than
just using 'operational' =).

Cheers! =D
