ah o.k,  nice to know. I'll try that.
(I thought declaring something to be of type #class is similar to 
the "implenents" declaration in java, where you can pass objects without a 
cast to methods accepting arguments of that interface, which I find 
nice :-) )
I like the oncept of ocaml to make no implizit casts; only when using objects 
I think casting to an upper class (!) should be done automatically since it's 
one of the basic "features" of oo programming.
