OCaml belongs also to the category of programming languages which support
to raise (or throw) exceptions.
This functionality triggers some software development consequences.
There are also function implementations to consider which will never raise
(or throw) exceptions because they were designed in the way to provide some
data only by their return values.
How are the chances to express such an implementation detail in corresponding
function signatures so that compilers can provide source code checks accordingly?
