I think OCaml does support polymorphic recursion, in at least two nonideal
ways, first through explicit polymorphism of record fields/polymorphic
methods  and secondly through recursive modules. You disagree?

Other than that, I mostly agree (OK, I'd prefer a better solution than
implicit stack resizing, like holes or promises, or whatever, for non tail
rec list functions), but I'm not ready to ditch OCaml for a dynamically typed
language.
