I wouldn't hold up OCaml as an example of how to structure your standard library, the lack of standardisation in its standard library is one of the remaining weak points of an otherwise excellent language. For those that don't know, there are multiple standard libraries for OCaml, each with different trade-offs, leading to unnecessary fragmentation.

Agreed, some things are still missing (in particular my pet peeve, iterators; also unicode strings). But for what it provides, OCaml's stdlib is reasonably well designed and performs well.
