not sure this is a black and white situation; seems like haskell/ml
have some pre-defined types that would already be covered, have
operations, be inferrable from the operations used.

i didn't write it well enough, apologies -- "non T Racket" meaning
"non-Typed Racket" as in old-school Racket, before TR existed.
