I have the following as part of a type declaration:
        and variable = {name:scheme; mutable value:scheme; next:variable}
        and field = {fname:scheme;
                     finit:scheme option;
        and clause = {tags:scheme list;code:scheme list}
        and binding = {id:int;mutable set:bool;value:scheme}

all of which compiles fine, but I get the error:
        The label value belongs to the type Types.binding
        but is here mixed with labels of type Types.variable
at a line that says, in part:

I didn't get the error before I added the field type! I'm (a)
confused, and (b) irritated that I have to keep making up names for

Is there some way I can force it to interpret the type constructor as
a particular type so that it chooses the labels from the correct set?

Thanks ../Dave
