| An interesting critique of OCaml.

Interesting to me is that my pet ocaml peeve is not there: namely the
lack of convenient operator overloading. Admittedly I only used ocaml
for 6 months, but I never adapted to needing to write (+) for ints, and
(.+) for floats.

>From the F# documentation it would appear that F# does have overloaded
numerical operators, at least. I'm not sure how these fit into its type
system however. (Their type is documented as "overloaded").
