Alternatively, what language evolutions would admit simpler,
I think that adding pure type variables would help, a lot. Type
functions, filters, maps, UFCS (typeVar.yourTraitHere), readily
composable type libraries, ... All these things *can* be done
today, sort of, with our ever growing zoo of template magic
tricks, conventions, and builtins, but there is a simpler and
better way forward.
