Vincent StAmour will tackle the question of how to exploit 
type information at some stage in the compilation process
starting this summer. If/when there is progress, it will be
announced here. (Exploiting type information for a HO polym
language isn't straightforward. See endless list of publications
starting with Leroy's 1992 paper.) -- Matthias
