Iavor: Wow, I really like the >c> trick at the type level.
Note: we can shorten that somewhat and improve the fixity to associate
correctly, matching the associativity of (>), which fortunately associates
to the right. (associating to the left can be done with a similar trick,
based on the original version of this hack by ChungChieh Shan.)
{# LANGUAGE TypeOperators, PolyKinds #}
import Control.Category
infixr 0 >~
infixr 0 ~>
type (>~) a b = b a
type (~>) a b = a b
g :: Category c => (x >~c~> y) > (y >~c~> z) > x >~c~> z
g = undefined
Note, this also has the benefit of picking the correct associativity for
>~c~>. Unlike naively using a locally bound (~>) and avoids the headaches
of picking (>) and (>) or something equally hideous when working with
two categories.
class (Category c, Category d) => CFunctor f c d  f c > d, f d > c where
cmap :: (a >~c~> b) > f a >~d~> f b
