Hello Charles,

You can write:
  type ('a, 'b, 'c) internal_t = { ... }

  type ('a, 'c) t = ('a, <some type>, 'c) internal_t

  type ('a, 'c) t

So ``hiding the polymorphism in 'b'' can be done, but you have to tell
the compiler which internal type should be used instead of 'b, i.e. you
have to choose <some type>. I guess the unit type will do in most

Hope this helps,

François Pottier
