This is interesting.  Is there a way to force OCaml to collect all
objects at exit, even global ones, obviously after all possible user
code has stopped running?  In Java I seem to remember there was a way
to configure the Gc to run all finalizers at exit.  One would think it
should be possible with a setting in OCAMLRUNPARAM.
