I thought about migrating storablevector to vector, but it seems that the 
vector package needs some GHC-only extensions like type families. I do not 
plan to make the storablevector package obsolete, but I think it would be 
useful if both packages would use the same datatype. Is it possible to put 
the Storable part of 'vector' into a separate package? Would this one be 
more portable?
