Subject: [Caml-list] lazy lists

Is the underlying implementation of the builtin lists in OCaml lazy?
If not, is performance the reason for them not being lazy? I think
lazy lists are a very strong point of Haskell, and am wondering if
there's a lazy list implementation with all the standard list
operations in the case that lists aren't lazy in OCaml.

Also, if they aren't, can someone give me some insight into the
reasons INRIA chose not to?

Kindest Regards,
