a reliable way of dropping levity args?

It might be nice to actually replace `drop (length args `div` 2) args` with a
function `dropLevityArgs = dropWhile (isLevityTy . typeKind)` (I did this in my
branch). When I see a code that drops half of the type arguments it doesn't
make sense right away, but `dropLevityArgs` is at least giving an idea of
what's actually happening.
