Subject: Re: [Caml-list] Int64 comparison
Taken from Int64.ml:

let compare (x: t) (y: t) = Pervasives.compare x y

compare seems to be there for functor applications (e.g. Set.Make
needs it). I would use standard comparison; it should be exactly the
same except it will be more legible and might be a tad faster.
