There seems to be widespread agreement that the current situation with regards to records is unacceptable, but the official GHC policy is that there are too many good ideas to choose from - so nothing gets done!

This ticket is a request to implement ExtensibleRecords in GHC.

Bump; is still how we deal with this sorts of extension request? ExtensibleRecords doesn't seem to have settled on one of the seven proposals, but I'm guessing things have changed, given type system extensions since this was created.

It looks like this needs more discussion on the lists and/or wiki, so I'll close this ticket.
