Seconded. If someone just wants to type less characters, the he/she
can omit most of type signatures.

I haven't used any IDE for Haskell (like VisualHaskell), but it would be
nice if it could fill the missing type signatures automatically. In
cases when monomorphism restriction kicks in, it could also present the
type that would be inferred with MR turned off.
