I've read more about design patterns than I'm willing to admit, and
implemented likewise.  Can you give five concrete patterns from the
GoF book that justify your rather nebulous position?

(Notice that the issue here isn't that types don't give you enough
certitude about the use of patterns, which most type systems don't.
You would need to demonstrate that type systems actively inhibit the
use of patterns.)
