Of course, this is a joke.
I don't want to advertise against OCaml since I'm making a living out of 
it like many of us on this list.

The meaning is really that in OCaml it is simply impossible to 
get segmentation faults.

My joke was about suggesting a way of making it much easier for 
beginners to trigger segmentation faults because they may miss them 
sometimes if they are used to other inferior tools.
