You can't do that in OCaml. Why don't you use objects or records to hold
the functions, instead of modules?

There are other MLs where you can pack a module into some manipulable
entity, but OCaml isn't one of them. Once you go there I wonder why not
just remove all differences between modules and records, since the two
things seem very similar.
