comrades--

I'm tempted to use the Oo.id function for its intended purpose, but I'm 
a little confused about why the function even exists.

What is so special about object values that they need to have a unique 
identifier, when all the other distinguished value types don't have 
such a quality?  I looked through the documentation about interfacing 
Caml with C, and I didn't see any indication that the object identifier 
is visible in the C interface.
