Would the following work for you:



type 'a linked = {
  data : 'a;
  mutable next : < > linked option
}
(* constraint 'a = < .. > *)

let create data next = {
  data = data;
  next = (next :> < > linked option)
}

let set_next x y =
  x.next <- (y :> < > linked option)


class s =
object
  method s = "abc"
end

class i =
object
  method i = 123
end


let s = create (new s) None
let i = create (new i) (Some s)



val create : 'a -> < .. > linked option -> 'a linked = <fun>
val set_next : 'a linked -> < .. > linked option -> unit = <fun>
class s : object method s : string end
class i : object method i : int end
val s : s linked = {data = <obj>; next = None}
val i : i linked = {data = <obj>; next = Some {data = <obj>; next = None}}
