One of the by-products of our work is the ability to define type
predicates such as those used in \cite{THF10} as plain functions and
have the inference procedure deduce automatically the correct
overloaded function type.
overloaded function type. More generally, our approach surpasses
current ones in that it can deduce precise (overloaded) types for
functions that in all other approaches either require
the programmer to specify the full precise type (e.g., the
function \code{foo} we defined in \eqref{foo} and \eqref{foo2} in
our introduction) or cannot be typed at all (the \code{and\_} and \code{xor\_} functions given
in \eqref{and+} and \eqref{xor+} are the most eloquent examples).
There is still a lot of work to do to fill the gap with real-world
programming languages. For example, our analysis cannot handle flow of
