[Haskell-cafe] Generics Versus Parametric Polymorphism

Just wondering if Generics and Parametric polymorphism are one and the same
in Haskell.


I read (somewhere!) an article stating that generics might be included in
Haskell Prime but I thought that they’re already included as parametric


Did I misread something? Or is generics in Haskell referring to something
completely different.
