Oh, sorry, I read your mail again and saw that you talked about
Richards OCaml implementation.

I googled for some keyords and found an implementation, mentioned on
this list (well, this thread was that bloated, that I didn't read it
completely, and so I've seen Richards mail the first time this night).

There was a module "Ancient", and I looked, what it does.

It allows using the swap-space for too-large files.
But that's IMHO a way to use more mem, but not to
provide fast executions.

I didn't use that module and heard of it just some minutes ago,
but it seems it's the wrong tool.

So, there should be better ways to go.
