Two questions on module ST:
<http://www.haskell.org/ghc/docs/latest/set/sec-st.html>

1. What's the 's' parameter for?

2. Do STRefs get garbage-collected once they're forgotten? For instance, 
if I have an action that calls newSTRef, uses the ref, and then forgets 
it, and I run the action repeatedly, am I at risk of running out of 
memory?
