Parametric Function Types
Generalize notion of type argument to parametric argument.
Parametric arguments:
1 Are only present to enable type checking.
2 Have no computational significance (cannot be matched on).
3 Can be skipped in equality checking.
4 Can be erased during program extraction.
User-controlled extraction.
Foundations: Miquel (2001), Barras/Bernardo (2008)
Automatic extraction: Letouzey (2002), Brady/McBride/McKinna
