I had the same concern and opened an RFC heading into that direction a
couple of weeks ago. [1] But as far as I understand this is quite a
technical challenge. For instance, this requires compile-time execution
of arbitrary functions, which has been discussed [2] in the past. Also
the scope of this type system extension needs to be clarified. I think,
my RFC is not complete in that regard yet, and would appreciate
constructive feedback very much.
