If I understand your message well enough, I think you are looking for
GHC's `ExistentialQuantification` extension. Building heterogeneous
collections is a common example of what existential types are useful
for. Take a look at this wiki page [1]; there is an example of how to
accomplish this there, along with a handful of other techniques.
