C++ has polyadic programming which is flakey but sort of works
reasonably well in practice some of the time even though it
is technically unsound .. <:)

For example, 'fold' is defined for all data structures,
just once (it's called accumulate).

This is miles ahead of Ocaml and Haskell, however I'll
stick with correctness, thanks.
