    124 * GHC makes heavy use of sets and finite maps.  Up till now it has used 
    125   its own home-grown `UniqFM` and `FiniteMap` modules.  Milan Straka (visiting as 
    126   an intern from the Czech Republic) has  
    127   * Made GHC use the `containers` package instead, which happily makes  
    128     compilation go a few percent faster. 
    129   * Developed some improvments to `containers` that makes it go faster still. 
    130     So `UniqFM` and `FiniteMap` are finally dead.  Hurrah for Hackage!
