Since it uses the toplevel (which is a form of compiler), it qualifies
better as a development tool.

It's not an error, it's an info :-) Please override it with a useful

It should be possible to compile stuff so that your:
could be replaced by a much faster:
Besides, the package would also be of better quality, because it would
not be available if the compilation of hol.ml failed.
