I'm tentatively proposing that a couple of people at Galois could take
over this, given some direction on what potential this library has.
My view would be that we:

    * break the package up into isolated units  (i.e. queues, trees, ..)
    * upload the pieces ot hackage
    * as we gain experience with it, replac/add things to the base and containers package
