Just because my OCaml programs were mutating strings and translating that into 
F# is non-trivial if the string is shared or big. In essence, I've always 
used OCaml's strings as a more efficient byte array. In fact, the best 
translation to F# is often to use byte arrays as a replacement for strings.
