    1717The most important drawbacks of this design relative to other designs are:
    1818
    19  * Support of only a limited subset of Haskell syntax (A work's being done to provide full support)
    20  * Lack of support for strict and unpacked fields (Support for strict records will be implemented in future versions)
     19 * Support of only a limited subset of Haskell syntax (presumably not an issue if built in to GHC)
     20 * Lack of support for strict and unpacked fields (a recent version provides entirely strict records, but not per-field strictness control otherwise the number of datatypes explodes)
    2121 * Lack of support for polymorphic (Rank-N) fields
    2222 * Fixed limit on the number of fields (24 in the current implementation, but the implementation can easily be updated to extend this range to an arbitrary amount)
