[Haskell-cafe] [ANNOUNCE] vector-conduit

I've released a small (one-module) library [1] inspired by functions in
Data.Conduit.List like sourceList, consumeList, and take.

The most recent (by a few days) depends on conduit-0.3.*, but
vector-conduit- depends on conduit-0.2.*. Notably, however, the
two have different APIs (0.3 has an API more consistent with other
vector operations). Use of any versions below 0.2.1 is discouraged as
consumeVector is notably less efficient since in those versions it relies
on a dlist.

This should be useful for replacing consumeList with consumeVector,
since consumeVector is much more efficient for reading in a large amount
of values with, at this point, very little code overhead for using a
Vector rather than a list.

The library uses Data.Vector.Generic so unboxed, boxed, immutable, and
mutable vectors are all supported, along with conduits for converting
between mutable and immutable.
