Goals

These are some proposed goals and guidelines for the project:

  • Don't worry about backward compatibility. We should learn from the mistakes of the past, not repeat them!
  • Provide a fine-grained algebra.
  • Provide convenient facilities for type composition and generic folds/unfolds.
  • Implement a declarative IO system?
  • Unambiguous semantics, when possible. When there is more than one possible instance of a type class for one data type, use newtype wrappers for all of those instances (no instance for the unwrapped version).
