It turns out that my claim is wrong -- at least as far as MCC 0.9.10 and
PAKCS 1.7.2 are concerned. Both implementations accept the following
program even though it is not type correct

   strangeList = x=:=1 &> f True "Hello"
     where (x:xs) = f True (repeat unknown)
           f _ [] = []
           f b (y:ys) = (if b then y else x) : f (not b) ys

I've fixed this bug recently in MCC's source tree and maybe someone can
apply the fix to PAKCS' source tree.

Regards
Wolfgang
