I asked why you think C should not be allowed to use memory pools - you haven't
tried to answer that question.

If you think that C should not be allowed to use memory pools because they are
provided in an external library then I disagree - I think it's fine to show use
of popular external libraries.

Of course, a C program that just uses malloc is also shown.

OCaml is authorized to make use of its very own library.

Just like all the other programming language implementations, for binary-trees,
OCaml is not authorized to tune the GC.
