1) What is SBA?

2) This needs at least a bit of elaboration.  I've been programming quite a
   bit with ocaml lately and I must say that type inferencing is sweet to
   use (and they use HM as far as I know).  There are limitations, of
   course, but so far they haven't been onerous.  Is your objection to HM
   or to non-graphical type inference, or both?
