Hmm, I wasn't aware that there was a "noalloc" directive. What does it
specifically declare? Does it make ocaml call the natives in a more
efficient manner (and of course the function must not allocate anything)?
Are there any other directives I should be aware of?

And according to the documents the "noalloc" should really be the name of
the native function? Am I really missing something here?
