First off, agree with you that rlwrap works well. That being said,
having an rl-alike linked with Ocaml's toplevel would add some
capabilities:
	* tab completion of identifiers currently in the environment
	* ability to reject malformed/non-parsing lines from the history

They're not killer features by any stretch, but they are a nice touch.

Cheers,
