Anybody have a pointer to this?

I'm really comparing the situation with Python. If I write some
Python code, I KNOW that there are about 100 modules (including
some pretty esoteric stuff see
that are GUARANTEED to be available at any destination which has
Python included.

The guaranteed availablity of huge variety of modules is something
I really miss in O'Caml, and thats on top of the fact that even
the standard modules have missing components like I pointed out
in the my earlier email in this thread.
