Clojure pods

This article discusses a new feature planned for the next version of Clojure:

They will be a new reference type which actually holds transients internally. Storing a value will make it a transient, retrieving a value automatically turns it into a persistent structure again. Updating the value however will work on the transient and hence be fast. So transients will become a low-level implementation detail hidden behind pods.
