Things like this make me wonder how people outside of INRIA understand the 
inner workings of Caml compiler (enough to modify it). Just  guessing by 
looking at the rather sparcely commented source? Or is there anything else?

In particular, I'm curious if parts of Caml compiler, such as "asmcomp", could 
be used as a sort of C--, i.e. a weakly typed backend for another language, 
especially if the language itself is written in Caml.
