Description Anne 2014-06-13 19:03:12 UTC
In Fetch I'm trying to make what can be returned from a stream somewhat more readable by defining an alias for JSON as object. See bug 25986.

However, that does not work as OR'ing with object causes a failure of sorts.

This seems similar to things like number-vs-string and whatnot.  I think we should just make 'object' distinguishable from interface types and pick the interface type if it matches.
Comment 2 Anne 2017-12-06 10:47:05 UTC
FWIW, I no longer need this functionality (not entirely sure what changed meanwhile). I'm going to close this since it's old, but if someone considers this important please raise it over at
