Ok, I misunderstood what you were doing here. I thought you were simply
packaging AVL trees, but you're actually including the generic
I'm not completely comfortable with shipping this framework with GHC at
the moment, given the small amount of discussion it has received, and
the volume of competition in this space. This isn't a criticism of the
design at all (indeed, I haven't looked at it in detail). I'd much
prefer to see this provided as a separate package for now.
Of course if a concensus emerges that this collections framework is the
right way to go, then we'll certainly include it - a collections
