Subject: [Caml-list] unique record types
The ocaml documentation mentions that field names in a record must be 
unique (within a module), although the ocaml book mentions an 
experimental language feature to get around this, that seems no longer 
available.

My question is, why is this so?  Can anyone recommend a paper explaining 
difficulties/solutions to implementing record types in the ML-style type 
system?

Thanks,

-John
