With about 4 variables that can each have any one of 77 or so types,
the current type checker creates 77^4 type assignments (about 35 million)
before throwing away all but one of them. Any tweaking of parameters
is a palliiative measure at best. The right solution is a constraint-based
type analysis algorithm, which a summer student has just started working on.
