#24: Conversion between different types of vectors

 Problems which require conversion between different types of vectors arise
 from time to time and they are not described in documentation.

 I think most important is conversion between unboxed and storable vectors.
 Unboxed vectors are more convenient to work with (Tuples!) and with
 storables one could hook into FFI. Conversion between these types should
 be covered in documentation. In this case O(1) conversion is of course

 Currently there are two method for vector conversion.
 convert1 = fromList . toList

 convert2 v = generate (length v) (v !)

 So please provide either function for conversion between vectors or
 describe this in documentation.
