Hi all

You may be aware that Shayan Najd presented the paper  "Trees that Grow"[1]
at HIW last year.

Based on the following mandate

We have set up a Wiki page at [2] describing a prototype implementation of
the first stage of this for the hsSyn AST, which is to change the
polymorphic variable from one of RdrName / Name / Id to an index type. This
is presented as a fabricator diff at [3].

Please take a look and provide feedback.
