The Obj module lets you access the internal representation of ocaml
objects, as desribed in the "Interfacing with C" section of the
manual.
Once you have understood the details of this representation, you can
start using it sparingly, to avoid having to write external C
functions. i.e. it is best seen as an alternative to writing C code,
and is not much safer than that (just a bit easier at the GC level).
