Just to pick out this small tidbit, FWIW the Vector.index and
Vector.Unsafe.index scheme has the advantage that you could simply
swap out a module import to switch between bounds-checked and
unchecked implementations.

I agree with vector going into the platform, but have no opinion on
whether the Safe Haskell issues need to be resolved first.

Your ship was caught in a monadic eruption.
