Richard W. Jones mentioned that he could use a similar feature on the mailing-list: https://sympa.inria.fr/sympa/arc/caml-list/2016-12/msg00021.html
The stack-based solutions rely on guessing arbitrary size limits on the dynamic strings, which is often possibles but sometimes inconvenient/inelegant.
