Hi all,

being occupied with learning both languages, I'm getting curious if Haskell couldn't achieve most of the performance gains
resulting from uniqueness typing in Clean by *automatically* determining the reference count of arguments wherever
possible and subsequently allowing them to be physically replaced immediately by (the corresponding part of) the
function's result. Are there any principal obstacles, or *could* this be done, or *is* this even done already, e. g. in
