> Hi all,
> I am delighted to announce the release of preview versions of two new packages:
> unordered-containers 0.1
> Efficient hashing-based container types.
> http://hackage.haskell.org/package/unordered-containers
> hashable 1.1
> Efficient hashing of common types.
> http://hackage.haskell.org/package/hashable
> These packages address a need for faster container types in Haskell,
> especially for string types like ByteString and Text. The package
> achieves better performance by using hashing and a Patricia trie (also
> known as a radix tree), instead of a balanced tree, in its
> implementation.

Don't worry what people think, they don't do it very often.
