Records in Haskell

I'm sorry Greg, I didn't mean to be offensive. I just feel that all your arguments in favour of this restriction are based on one particular application of records, rather than a general notion of what records are. Obviously this application is what motivates you to do all the valuable work you have done, and I appreciate that. But people are going to use records in many different ways, and I don't think that a restriction which makes perfect sense in your application should be allowed to restrict the ways other people want to write programs.
