To be more clear: you brought up typeclasses, but typeclasses are the way
they are in support of the real reason: putting the "object" last
encourages functional programming. Last I checked, Haskell was about
functional programming. You seem to be asserting that it is more important
to support OOP thinking and discard the unnecessary FP baggage.
