Shapeless and scala core

Matan Safriel
Do you foresee features from Shapeless such as polymorphic function values and heterogenous lists, making it into the scala core, or working in a very performant and robust way on top the scala core? (not to mention surviving breaking changes in scala language future releases).

We are very much in the early formative stages for what will be in future Scala versions. As Simon says, some of the stuff in Shapeless is top of the list for inclusion. In particular, everybody agrees that some (robust and efficient) version of HLists would be much preferable over current tuples with their arbitrary 22 limit. That's just one example.

Cheers
