It would sure be nice if Getopt.Symbol was smarter and could do the
full conversion from string to internal type safely.  That would
remove the need to have the type unsafe cases like:

This would be trivial with a camlp4 or ppx macro.  Since we don't want
to add those packages as dependencies, how about generating code (in
the generator) to do that?
