thanks for your information! I have now read your paper on "parasitic
methods" (I like this term!) and found it indeed very interesting. It
seems it would be a fine means of solving the problem which was the
starting point of the earlier thread ((covariant) specialization of
comparison methods) - not to speak of the many other possible advantages.

I wonder what the OO-implementors of OCAML think about it - and generally,
whether there are already any intended "surprises" (I mean: nice ones ;-)
for us in one of the next OCAML-releases...

Best regards,
Markus Mottl
