Subject: [Caml-list] Semantics of physical equality
I'm trying to figure out what I can rely on about physical equality. 
 I've checked the OCaml manual but can't seem to find what I want to 
know.

Presume

# type t = V0 | V1 of int;;
type t = V0 | V1 of int

# V0 == V0;;
- : bool = true

V0's are the same.  Is this guaranteed?

# V1(0) == V1(0);;
- : bool = false

V1's are different.  Is this guaranteed?
