Rock crashes(segmentation fault) while compiling this:

foo: func<T>(a: T) {}

but inferring from parameter works well:

foo: func<T>(a: T) {}

Related to #811, maybe?

Yes, this is a duplicate issue, the <Generic List> syntax is not supported for functions in ooc but nagaqueen bugs out on such statements.

I've tried to fix that but didn't find out how, I will try my best to fix some pressing issues this weekend.

After that, I will only be fixing rock bugs (some pretty messily) and writing a new compiler from scratch, hopefully learning from the problems rock has.
Of course, it will take long before it is production ready but it will hopefully be less of a mess.
