Does Set have a Functor?
scala.collection.Set has a map method, and as Paul Phillips recently pointed out, this can lead to some surprising behaviour. So, what is at play here, and how do we make sure it works as expected.

Quicker-sort?
Given Scala's rich type-system and ability to create powerful abstractions, can we derive generic sorting based on distribution that outperforms generic comparison-based sorting? Based on the work of Fritz Henglein and Ralf Hinze, "Sorting and Searching by Distribution: From Generic Discrimination to Generic Tries" and "Generic Top-down Discrimination for Sorting and Partitioning in Linear Time".
