large prob;em of OOP languages with generics is interaction between
those two types of polymorhism. covariant/contravariant typing is one
example. since Haskell lacks OOP classes, it doesn't have such
pronblem at all. overall, speaking, pure languages (pure OOP, pure FP,
pure LP) is much simpler than ones trying to combine OOP, FP and
everything else together. There Is Only One Way To Do It In Haskell ;)
