There is no such thing as mutable variable (as in imperative languages) in
Haskell (and my guess is that you are looking exactly for that type), so I
guess that for now you must bear with aux. parameter. 

Use of state monad will help to improve the look of your function, but
learning curve for monads could be steep.
