More and more code is becoming void-safe and today you want to turn an existing library into a completely void-safe one. If you start by setting the void-safety level to its highest setting, you might get discouraged quickly by the sheer number of errors.

We all know about generics as a wonderful help to implement container
data structures like lists, sets, bags etc. Much later than Eiffel,

that generic parameters are a powerful extension to the type system
and remove the need for many casts. So, what else can we do with
generics beyond containers?
