[Types-sig] A challenge

There seem to be several proposals for type declaration syntaxes out
there, with (mostly implied) suggestions on how to spell various types

I personally am losing track of all the various proposals.

I would encourage the proponents of each approach to sit down with
some sample code and mark it up using your proposed syntax.  Or write
the corresponding interface file, if that's your fancy.

I recommend using the sample code that I posted as a case study,
including some of the imported modules -- this should be a
reasonable but not extreme challenge.
