comment Can GPL-licensed software be resold?
If you forbid the software to be resold, it is not considered free software anymore by many people (the OSI will not consider it Open Source, see 1 in opensource.org/docs/osd). And it will not be compatible with the GPL. If you do not want your software to be resold do not use the GPL or a modified version thereof.

comment Should I make public my implementation of a published algorithm?
Indeed. You do not need to publish your implementation of Quicksort, Dijkstra, A*, Branch and bound search or whatever. Those "published algorithms" (and many others) are implemented a lot of proprietary software and the code of the implementation is not released.

comment Is return-type-(only)-polymorphism in Haskell a good thing?
"How could we encode this as an interface in an OO language?" You could use first-class algebra: interface Monoid<X> { X empty(); X append(X, X); } However you need to pass it explicitly (this is done behind the scene in Haskell/GHC).
