unamb: Unambiguous choice

[ bsd3, concurrency, data, library, other ] [ Propose Tags ]

unamb contains the "unambiguous choice" operator unamb, which wraps thread racing up in a purely functional, semantically simple wrapper. Originally a part of Reactive, I moved unamb to its own package in order to encourage experimentation.

Note: unamb correctly implements lub (least upper bound) for flat types only. I suggest using the lub package instead of unamb.
