Data.HashTable (and thus Data.Array.*) is used in the implementation
of Data.Typeable. It also differs from the others in being a mutable
data structure. I imagine that without it this package wouldn't need to
depend on array and concurrent.
Data.Monoid could possibly go here too. Another possibility is to split
the 4 class modules from the concrete data structures.
