It looks interesting and I'm still looking at it, although I think
many of the language extensions need to be better thought out. But it
exhibits the "creeping Eq" problem: your hierarchy starts
class (Eq (coll a), Eq a)
=> Collection coll a
If this is to replace lists, this is unacceptable: I can't have lists
of (say) functions?
Collection classes should not require Eq instances on the members,
except when necessary!
