That's fair. I just hope the implicit parameter implementation is
orthogonal enough that it's worth keeping around.
I think the motivating examples in "Implicit parameters: dynamic scoping
with static types" (http://citeseer.ist.psu.edu/246042.html&e=10342) are
at least as compelling as those in the just-implemented
"Associated types with class",
maybe it's just me.
