Ah, OK, that's fine to start with the type! :)

Starting the task with the type clarifies a lot! :)

OK, that's nice... I had forgotten how (but knew that I once knew
that it must be possible) to make a functional record-update-copy.
The "with" keyword is a fine thing. :)
Looks so much smaller the code, much nicer than the let...in stuff :)

OK, I will explore it.

Thanks.
