    Hey, I have... I'm a co-author of Algebird[0], which has many ideas that I'd pull over.

    I'm hoping to introduce Clojure's "spec" or "schema" libraries so that the types at play can at least be inspectable inside the system. In a fully typed language, I'd implement the extensible generics as typeclasses.

    I suspect it would make it quite a bit tougher (at least in the approach I'm imagining) for folks to write new generic functions, due to many type constructors...

    On the other hand, the complexity is there, even if you don't write it down!

    It would be a big project, and a worthy effort, to write down types for everything in SICM.
