  // Creates a new mutable reference and mutates it
  def e1[A] = for {
    r <- newVar[A](0)

  } yield x

  // Creates a new mutable reference, mutates it, and reads its value.
  def e2[A] = e1[A].flatMap(

  def test = new Forall[ST[?,Int]] {
    def apply[A] = e2

  // Run e1, returning a mutable reference to the outside world.
  // The type system ensures that this can never be run.
  def test2 = new Forall[λ[S=>ST[S,STRef[S,Int]]]] {
    def apply[A] = e1

  val compiles = runST(test)

  // Does not compile because it would expose a mutable reference.
  // val doesNotCompile = runST(test2)

  // Bin-sort a list into an immutable array.
  // Uses a non-observable mutable array in the background.
  def binSort[A: ClassTag](size: Int, key: A => Int, as: List[A]): ImmutableArray[List[A]] =
    accumArray(size, (vs: List[A], v: A) => v :: vs, List(), for { a <- as } yield (key(a), a))

  assert(binSort(12, (_: String).length, List("twenty four", "one", "")).toList.flatten === List("", "one", "twenty four"))
  assert(compiles === 1)
