shuffling, I'd much rather have it be one-time (blaze-builder ->
bytestring) than having multiple merges/ports going on. Especially
since building bytestrings is a much more generic operation than
Regarding the interface, I think that as long as the same *basic*
operations are available, it's fine to have extra operations as well.
Several of blaze-builder's special-case functions (toByteStringIO ,
fromWriteList) allow more efficient operation than the generic

Can any of the blaze-builder optimizations be translated to the Text
builder? When I benchmark it against binary and cereal, blaze-builder
is approximately 2-3 times faster for most use cases.
