This is one of the reasons why I do not get it that nobody annotates 
types in OCaml. If I had  to deal with a Clean function I would not have 
made the mistake of using split in a wrong manner, because:

split:: String Char -> [String]
split s c ....

but in OCaml:

split s c ...

I agree the compiler would rebel if I pass wrong types, however, this 
does not increase readability as opposed to Clean.
