[Haskell-cafe] New STM Data Structures Collection

That's a reasonable suggestion. Actually the "Internal" module name was 
left there because we decided to export all implementation at the last 
We've spent quite a lot of time working on benchmarks. Now you can find 
those which was ran on my laptop right in the github repo [1].
Although this kind of setting (I mean 4 capabilities) may not be the 
desired environment for STM-based algorithms. I believe we'll provide 
plots for machines with more capabilities in due course.
Probably I had to include link to benchmarks into haddock package 


Thanks for your reply.
