    Lets decompose this code from the article a little. The definition of circularBuffer indicates that given a buffer size the function will return G[Queue[F, A]]. G is some higher kinded type with an implementation of the Sync typeclass ( (a typeclass for suspending synchronous actions). Why is G needed? Well Queue's are asynchronous data structures so some concurrency primitives must be allocated like Ref and Deferred. (
