[Haskell-cafe] Proposal for a standard collection of algorithms/Data structures in haskell

Hi cafe,

Whenever you search for a library for doing some standard task on hackage
there are lots of implementations available and some of them are poorly
implemented without any thoughts given to design and speed. Most of them
are left as it is without any further improvements/bug fixes.

A limited collection of data-structures and associated algorithms are
available in base. It would be nice for the community to maintain a
standard collection of recommended implementations (both fast and well
designed) of data structure and algorithms (similar to Boost for C++). This
can again be maintained and moderated by the community. All the
implementation in the collection can adhere to a standard design principle
and idiomatic haskell.

I would really love to hear your thoughts on this proposal.
