Subject: License clarification
I'm sorry to bother you all but I'd like some clarification on the Ocaml
license. First, let me state that I do not plan to modify the Ocaml
compilers, libraries, or any thing else which is included in the
official Ocaml distribution. I wouldn't even know where to start :-D.

That said, few question:
1) If I write a program or library in the ocaml language, are there any
restrictions on the licensing/distribution of source code or
bytecode/binaries produced by the ocaml compilers?

2) If I write a C extension to be linked with an ocaml program, are
there any restrictions on its license/distribution?

3) May I link a closed source (or other restrictively licensed) C
library to ocaml code?
