Subject: query: experience with object system
Like, I suspect, many ocaml users, I've read the
documentation for the object system, thought that it
looked neat, but not really used it too much.  Well,
what do people think?  I'm particularly interested in
what people who have worked with other object-oriented
languages have to say.  Does ocaml have any great
advantages over C++, smalltalk or CLOS?  Are there
features in those languages that you miss in ocaml?
The other question I have is whether you find it hard
to integrate object-oriented programming with a
traditional ML style.  Modules, higher-order
polymorphic functions, variants and records, objects,
and now polymorphic variants seem to provide a lot of
overlapping functionality.  Does this make it hard to
rationally design systems or reuse code?
