Subject: [Caml-list] transactions?
Is there an Ocaml eqivalent of begin/end blocking section?
I.e. something that sets the global lock if threads
are enabled (but still compiles if they're not)?

So can write for example:
  if Hashtbl.mem h k then () else Hashtbl.add h k v;

and know the table won't get changed by another thread
between the lookup and insertion?
