No, please don't. It is pointless enough to have tons of AOL messages
in the bug log, we really don't want the same on list.

Sorry if I'm being too frank, but I don't see the usefulness of your
post. I would love to see basic meta-programming feature in vanilla
Caml, but the way to make it happen is for sure not lobbying / making
noise.  The way is provide patches which implement the requested
feature.

Cheers.
