I'm not convinced this will be better than using STM - the critique
against STM seems (as always) not to apply to implementations where
transactional data are segregated by the type system.  I'm not sure
about the non-composability of retry and orElse that the authors refer
to, anybody know?

If I haven't seen further, it is by standing in the footprints of giants
