-- | Simple but efficient strict sequence type based on a nested data type and polymorphic recursion.
--
-- It is like a list, but instead of @O(1)@ cons\/uncons and @O(k)@ lookup,
-- we have amortized @O(1)@ cons/uncons and @O(log(k))@ lookup (both are @O(log(n))@ in the worst case).
-- This is somewhat similar to a finger tree (which is also represented by a nested data type), but
-- much simpler and more memory efficient (memory usage is basically the same as with lists: amortized
-- 3 words per element, plus the data itself).
--
-- However, modifying the right end of the sequence is still slow: @O(n)@. This affects the functions
-- 'snoc', 'unSnoc', 'append', 'take', 'init'. Somewhat surprisingly, /extracting/ the last element is
-- still fast.
--
-- An example usage is a pure random-access stack.
--
-- This module is intended to be imported qualified.
