Not really.  You still don't have the context which allows you to fit  
the Haskell features into a complete system.  Meaning is derived from  
context, it's not inherent --- and the meaning and use of even those  
features that translate between Haskell and C++ is completely  
different, because the context they need to fit into makes them  
suitable for different sorts of applications.
