Ah .. i seem to recall a discussion on this on comp.lang.functional
now? Regarding partial specialisation where some type vars
are specialised and some not?

BTW: the notion of 'separate compilation' is pretty fuzzy these
days I think.

For example one could argue that it means 'avoiding recompilation
of common parts  of multiple programs' and in this sense
C and C++ don't have separate compilation :)
