Subject: Re: [Caml-list] raise extra arg ignored
The `obvious' solution is to make raise be a statement rather than a
function.  That has the added benefit of making raise a little
clearer, to wit, instead of:

; ocaml
        Objective Caml version 3.02

# exception Foo of int;;
exception Foo of int
# raise Foo 42;;
Characters 6-9:
The constructor Foo expects 1 argument(s),
but is here applied to 0 argument(s)
# 

	raise Foo 42
could be interpreted properly (i.e. as
	raise (Foo 42)

This is one of the few ways that I prefer Java syntax over ocaml syntax.
