Block-I/O in Haskell

In the spirit of "release early, release often", I have made
a small library available at

..., which provides a StateT wrapper for IO plus a number of
useful primitives to do fast, block-oriented I/O in Haskell.
It's by no means complete nor stable nor useful, but it
comes with a version of the word-counting program that, on
my machine, beats the version from Tomasz Zielonka. :-)

It is still under development, but the API should be stable.
Hope anyone finds this useful.
