First, sorry for parasitizing this thread with this unrelated subject.


The OOHaskell paper gives encapsulation. mutable state, inheritance,
overriding, It uses haskell type safety to the limit, and virtual methods
among other things. That is more than what most OO languages can offer
(specially type checking)

These things are important in the mind of the OO people. Type classes while
providing other different and more powerful advantages, do not cover these
requirements. They are also very important for translating without pain,
many tons of object oriented code to Haskell.
