Also, you may want to look at how the SmallEiffel compiler does it's
type inferencing...  They did it well enough to get rid of virtual
function tables...  There's a few papers that describe what they did and
the essence of how it works and the rather amazing perfomance numbers
(and obviously the souce code is available to give you an implementation
to look at -- written in Eiffel).
