The original library was CamlTk, and LablTk was actually created by
hacking the automatic generation tool included in CamlTk.

As a result, for a long time only CamlTk was available, and for
instance the MMM web browser was developped using CamlTk. Many
examples are available, and CamlTk is described in one of the rare
books on OCaml written in English.

For all these reasons, it is necessary to continue supporting it, and
the current implementation does it at a very low cost, by using the
same backend.
