Can we at least do operators overloads for them then? It’s such a trivial change and makes it possible to use inheritance for records (I can do this in C++,C#,Swift which is very nice). Specifically I was trying to refactor some code and using subclasses for vectors would be really nice but without operator overloads it’s not possible.

Also, since we’re not getting ARC classes it looks like, management operators for objects would make it possible to use a base class for “boxing” managed classes.
