Well, that's why I included the other leg, where I'd like the  
compiler to catch me at compile time if I set up a situation where it  
might occur --- because ideally that case can't happen at run time,  
but if I set up the types that way then I can't build the state  
machine because it's a polymorphic list.  (And no, I don't think  
HList is the right answer here.)
