Subject: Re: [Caml-list] marshaling limits
Don't quote me on this, but I believe that marshal uses a string in bytecode
with threads, uses straight malloc with bytecode and no threads, and never
uses strings in native code.  I'm /very/ unsure about that last one, but I
am pretty confident that in some cases, whether it uses strings depends on
whether threads are involved.
