[Haskell] Dynamic binding

Hi All,
In Simon Thompson's The Craft of Functional Programming Second Edition, 
page 226, it is mentioned that Laufer (1996) describes a Haskell 
extension to allow dynamic binding. I was wondering if this has been 
implemented as an extension in any of the haskell compilers, or variants?
I am a c++ programmer by trade, only dabbling in Haskell when I was at 
university, so it seems a disadvantage to me to not have dynamic binding 
in Haskell 98.
What would be the normal way for a Haskell programmer to handle the 
typical shape example in beginner OO tutorials?

Andrew Ward.
