While the multiprocessor version went into in Caml Light 0.4 in '93, it does mention in passing the cut-down uniprocessor algorithm as implemented in Ocaml. 
I found no mention of concurrency through the hump link to Caml Light, so now I'm 
wondering whether it still lives on in some other guise.
It would be great to have it as a compilation option to Ocaml.
So how about it...?  :o)
