Now there's an interesting discussion! Where in your design do you
want objects, if you don't mind my asking? What design style (custom,
standard cell,  FPGA, ...) is your P&R program intended to address?

My admittedly narrow minded bias based EDA tasks is that I'd rather have
a more powerful system of records than what OCaml currently has, instead
of classes, and that when I do write code with classes, it's not really using

If you're into EDA though, there are quite a few APIs based on C++ and now
Java and Python (I'm thinking of OpenAccess here) which may pressure anyone
writing OCaml bindings into a "me tOO" design.
