yet another remark

rraise (Foo i) (function Foo_r1 x -> ... | e -> raise e)

seems shorter, equivalent and more efficient. Am I wrong ?

remark: it seems one very rarely use exceptions as values passed to 
function and matched with normal match ... but this is
completely legal in OCaml !

In fact exceptions in OCaml are one big polymorphic variant type that 
existed before polymorphic variant where introduced ;-)
