    Selector library for Redux

    But we needed this in Reselect because it has an incredibly variadic JS runtime API. You can pass in any number of input selectors, as either individual function arguments or one big array, and all the rest of the output behavior depends on those. This one giant MergeParameters type is effectively replacing 3300 lines of copy-pasta'd typedefs for 1...12 input selectors.
