Okay. This is exactly what I was asking for. But... now I am a little
bit confused since I was used to think that inheritance was a concept
that applies to classes, and (sub)typing to class types. Could you
explain? (Please note I am new to these topics...)

It may be not related, but the toplevel does not print out the "inherit"
construct after the typing of the classes:

        Objective Caml version 2.02

# class x =                        
    object
      method m = ()
    end
  ;;
class x : object method m : unit end
# class y =
    object
      inherit x  
      method n = ()
    end
  ;;
class y : object method m : unit method n : unit end
                 ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
                 No "inherit x" used instead here...


Best regards,
