Thanks you pointed out this.  It is a very fundamental issue.  I have
been asking myself: "But this B# thingy smells much like ML/Haskell
and its descendent, but where are the type conversions formally
defined?"  I've read Weber's and Doye's contributions; I have the
distinct feeling I'm still missing the "big picture", i.e. the picture
is still incomplete.
