Check inferred type against signatures.

As we add sig types to the graph, we'll get a type error if part of it can't be unified with the inferred type. However, we don't currently check that the inferred types effect, closure and constraints is <: the signature. Want sigs to be instantiatable from the inferred type.

Also want to have partial sigs. Maybe we need a different syntax compared with :: sigs. eg:

fun <: a -(!Console)> b

On the mailing list Ben said:

We should add another form for type signatures "fun <: typesig " that ensures that the inferred type of fun is smaller (less effectful) than the typesig. This is related to #2, check class instances against their definitions.
