That's why it's called ML (MetaLanguage); ML began as a metalanguage.
I wish you were using SML instead of OCaml, but I suppose I can learn.

A few times, I did some exuberant stomping about,       John Cowan
like a hippo auditioning for Riverdance, though         cowan at
I stopped when I thought I heard something at 
the far side of the room falling over in rhythm
with my feet.  -- Joseph Zitt
