In case anyone else is interested, I found this one at:

After a brief look at it I noticed that they also define superclasses,
which I guess could also be used to define some kind of inheritance
hierarchy.  Is this likely to be developed for mercury?

Also, the type classes are not in 0.7, right?  Do the beta versions
include these and will they be included in the next release?
