Subject: [Caml-list] Why are arithmetic functions not polymorph?

I'm new to OCaml, so I hope my question is not to stupid.

Can anybody explain to me why the arithmetic functions ('+', '-', ...) 
are not polymorph
(in the sense that they have floating point equivalents '+.', '-.', 
I don't understand this, because comparison funtions ('<', '>', ...) 
are polymorph.
So, where is the problem with arithmetic functions?

regards, Jan
