Type declaration conventions

One way to think of types is as if they were physical units, like kilograms or watts or furlongs per fortnight. These are all distinct types, and trying to mix them is like mixing apples and oranges. When making a declaration, think about whether you should use an existing type or make a new type to distinguish a
new usage.
