Yes, you can have one default declaration per module.
The default default is (Integer, Double), meaning Integer is chosen if it's
possible, otherwise Double is tried (for Fractional, Floating, ...
constraints), if that doesn't satisfy all constraints either, error out
with Ambiguous type variable ...
