Interesting, but I don't see how to prevent the type checker to give
the type 'a to "raise Foo". Or else, you can add a type constraint,
but it is constraining... and it depends on where this "raise"
statement takes place.

I wonder whether there are situations where it could be a problem?
Sometimes, a missing semicolon can introduce typing errors or perhaps
work with different semantics (what is very bad). But here, I don't
see, since, generally, nobody add another statement after a "raise".
Does anybody have an example?
