Did you mean "not available"? I don't know of a Haskell language feature
for this, so if you really did mean "now" then I'd love to learn about the
feature you're thinking of.
Only think I can think of is having the constructors, as seperate data

It looks to me like you want dependent types. You might look at Agda. It's
similar to Haskell but features dependent types and other interesting
