[Haskell-cafe] Are functional dependencies around to stay?

Hi everyone,

I'm wondering if there is any chance that functional dependencies will 
not be around in the future. I do not actually understand the subject 
yet as such, but I'd like to make sure before I get deeper into it that 
it's something that will be around in the time to come.

What I understand of Haskell is that it's not so much "engineered" like 
other languages but more "derived" from Math, well the very foundations 
anyway. But some things I can not determine whether or not they are 
derived from math and thus will stay, or are engineered and might go 
away, functional dependencies for instance.
