But surely in many cases, it would be possible to determine which
link is relevant, and go directy?  I was under the impression that
there were some difficult cases (you mentioned type classes) that
tended to mess things up -- I would of course only advocate the
indirect approach if it's difficult to do it directly.

If I haven't seen further, it is by standing in the footprints of giants
