A difference but not necessarily a weakness. OCaml makes performance
transparent and gives you the ability to improve it with a high glass
ceiling. I prefer that to hiding the controls and using ad-hoc rules to
tweak things behind your back, rendering performance unpredictable and
making it hard to optimize your code.
