Hi. I'm quite intrigued by the polymorphic variant type system
extension in O'Labl and I would like to try it; but I thoroughly
dislike the other parts of O'Labl (labels and optionals). Is there a
way to apply just parts of the Ocaml -> O'Labl patch to get just the
polymorphic variants and nothing else? I realize that nothing forces
me to actually _use_ labels and optionals, except --- the standard
library gets labelized! So, I'd be willing to have the entire compiler
patch applied, if only the library is left alone. Please?

I fully support the President's proposal to test driver's license
applicants for drugs.  Any plan to reduce driving is worth a try.
