Oops. I think I've confused optionnal *arguments* and optionnal
*labels*. Sorry.

So the best way is probably to avoid using labels in stdlib at all.

BTW, Jacques Garrigue, is it mandatory to have labels to exploit label
commutativity? For example, an application without labels would be
considered as a standard ocaml2 application, whereas application with
labels would be an ocaml3-modern label-commutative application. If this
could be possible, we could combine best of both worlds (ie no labels or
commutative-labels for stdlib).
