You don't think Python's dict implementation is functional? That's pretty 
strange, Python dicts are the basis of much of the language. They 
certainly work, and work well, what makes you think they aren't 
functional? What does Data.Map do that dicts don't?

Oh, and Paul, you've been around long enough that you should know better 
than to be cross-posting like you did.
