Hi Milan, perhaps this is a dumb question, but given that you're using a lazy 
functional language: why do you want to do destructive updates at all?

Perhaps you'd be better off using an imperative/object-oriented language?

If you're trying to create a static data structure, perhaps the credit card 
transform is the approach to use?

Running benchmarks for destructive updates in Haskell seems a waste of time(?)
