Even though advertised as parallel programming tools, parMap and other
functions that work in parallel over *sequential* access data
structures (i.e. linked lists.) We want flat, strict, unpacked data
structures to get good performance out of parallel algorithms. DPH,
repa, and even vector show the way.
