We've had six weeks of intermittent discussions now, but I haven't seen
anything potentially dangerous to the proposal except for some
hand-wringing and crossed wires over Safe Haskell.

I'd like to continue to manage the discussion process fairly actively,
namely by trying to draw it to a close.

So. On the "pro" side, vector is already widely used and liked.

On the "con" side, there's the Safe Haskell question. Simon is quite
reasonably in favour of SH, and also very reasonably not treating this
question as a blocker. I'll admit to not having found a compelling reason
to care about SH yet, and I would similarly be sad to see a good library
get hung up on a compiler feature that is not yet widely accepted.

Upon looking through the threads of discussion around this proposal, I
haven't been able to find anything else. Are there other Big Questions we
need to resolve before Aug 13?
