Subject: [Caml-list] byte-code and -fno-defer-pop

C-files in the OCaml-distribution are usually compiled with -fno-defer-pop
when they are supposed to be used with byte code, too. What is the
rationale behind? Is this only intended to limit stack growth a bit or
are there other reasons? This opposite of this option is normally turned
on when optimisation (-O) is used. Would you recommend this setting
generally for C-code that should cooperate with OCaml-byte code?

Thanks for enlightenment!
