[curry] Re: Haskell compatibility

Maybe it's a superset of Haskell 98? Modern Haskell has more than two
hundred language extensions, a few dozen of which are quite popular. Code
that uses those will not in general (ever?) be something you can just drop
unchanged into a Curry project.

Some of the extensions (e.g. ViewPatterns, LambdaCase, OverloadedStrings,
TupleSections) are basically syntactic sugar, and it's easy to rewrite your
code without them. Others (DataKinds, GADTs, TypeFamilies, RankNTypes) let
you do things that are impossible otherwise.
