    v17 v18  
    1111     * are used in several safe programing idioms that would not be workroundable.  
    1212 * the monomorphism restriction 
     13   * (JL) This one has been worked so extensively in the past, I find it hard to imagine we could make any significant progress. 
    1314 * classes  (no really, there are people who advocate this!) 
     15   * (JL) This would so fundamentally change the nature of Haskell as to make it a different language. It is surely out of scope for what we plan to accomplish. 
    1416 * class contexts on data definitions  
    1517   * For removal: they add no extra useful expressivity that is not already present in the function signatures which use the datatype.
