It means that functions can only be used monomorphically within their  
own binding group. (That includes the definition of the function  
itself: functions cannot be polymorphically recursive. Of course,  
these restrictions do not apply in case of explicit type signatures.  
Even if this doesn't all make sense, immediately, it should give you  
something to google for. ;-))
