Hi,

I don't know if it is in the FAQ, but a more interesting question is why the 
compiler cannot deduce the correct type without us having to type in 
parenthesis, at least in cases where there can be no ambiguity.

I.e.:

let addone x = x + 1
let double x = x * x

let f x = addone double x     (*** Should the compiler not deduce this? ***)
let g = addone double         (*** Is this why? ***)

PKE.
