I propose to add a flag to GHC to only compile programs that have type signatures for the defining equations. The purpose of this is to satisfy the belt and braces notion of programming and to also aid in teaching Haskell as a programming language.

Calling GHC with the following

ghc -ftypesignatures a.hs

will reject a.hs if any of its definitions do not have type signatures.

As Neil says, you can already do this, so I'm closing this ticket.
