Subject: Instruction selection in the OCaml compiler: Modules or classes?
Folks,

I'm reading through the icfp99 slides on classes vs modules in OCaml.  
The part that I'm interested in starts on p27 where instruction  
selection in the OCaml compiler is discussed.

I'm not well-versed in the OCaml compiler code yet so I thought I  
would ask the list: does the compiler use a module or class solution?

The slides seem to favor the class-based solution but then I hear  
that classes in OCaml are slow and people like Markus Mottl just  
plain despise them :-). What does everyone else opine?

	Thanks, Joel
