Thanks to your question, I took another look and the old and wonderful
OOHaskell paper. It is very well written and describes almost exhaustively
the haskell alternatives and their shortcomings:


Honestly, with the information I can have, my view is that the ·"let it
grow" issue in the full is only achievable by following the OOHaskell path,
but you can use the other ways paying a little price.

This past discussion also applies:
