Yes, these are recent changes made to get the code included in GHC
Head. You could check out an old version if you wanted that doesn't
use many GHC internal api's. Uses String and Data.Map instead of the
GHC internal versions.

If you go about replacing them then it would be nice if you did it by
abstracting them out rather then just changing the concrete data
types. That way potentially we could both use the same code base.
