It depends. If you _allocate_ (e.g. ints are not allocated) a caml  
value v1 then another caml v2 and then modify v1, you need to keep a  
hand on v1 with CAMLparam because it may move when you allocate v2.  
If you allocate only a single value then there is no need to do it  
(unless some code you call may invoke the gc before you use v1).

No. But I never did the C -> ocaml -> C way so I don't really know  
how to proceed. The first thing that comes to mind is to store the  
result in a variable given to  the function.

void f1 (int i, double *result) {
	*result = ...

Maybe there's another way, I don't know.
