No the error I got was
Could not deduce (Controller m v c)
from the context (Controller m v c2)
arising from a use of `MVC' at NM8\GUI\PanZoom.hs:126:32-65
add (Controller m v c) to the context of the constructor `MVC'
In the expression: MVC m v (PZC s z (unsafeCoerce c))
In the definition of `panZoomedMVC'':
panZoomedMVC' s z (MVC m v c) = MVC m v (PZC s z (unsafeCoerce c))
I got this after adding the type signature of
panZoomedMVC' :: (Controller m v c, PanZoomable z) =>
State -> z -> MVC m v -> MVC m v
But I don't have the problematic code anymore.
Anyway, I've hacking away here, as you can see from the unsafeCoerce call,
which is now not needed anymore ;)
