Subject: Recursive types
How are arbitrary recursive types implemented in caml? Is it done using 
an explicit fix point combinator "type" so that the unifier itself does 
not go into an infinite loop?

I apologize if this topic has been previously discussed, and I would 
really appreciate if somebody can point me at the relevant postings.
