Well, for the record. I think the lack of good "standardised" data
structures is one of the main problems with Haskell (and one of the
easiest to fix). So if you do have the incliniation and time to work
on it, I know I'd sure apreciate it!

A good "standard" class hierarchy for collections and several
implementations is very much needed, IMO.
