It sounds like functional dependencies are also going to be temporary
feature, until whatever replaces them. If anyone wants to use puns
this time next year, I recommend someone proposes them for Haskell
Prime - they have 2 implementations, are well established,
theoretically sound and seem to have a lot more people who want them
than I ever knew!

Yet despite this, I never even knew they existed, and there are quite
a few places I could have used them, now I know what they are.
