To learn how to program with muttable arrays in Haskell, I have done
a very simple program to sum two arrays. I am submitting it to this
group so that it can be reviewd and commented. I have not find
examples on how to program with muttable arrays.

I would like for instance to see comments on the way the
iteration over the array indices was done: using a list
of indices. I looked for a way of incrementting an
index, starting from the lower bound towards the upper
bound, but failed in finding it. Is there other ways of
iterating over the muttable array other then using
its list of indices?
