Suppose that I have two tabs, A and B, which have open the files a.ml
and b.ml respectively. I switch to tab A, then click run. Then I switch
to tab B, then click run. Now, I switch back to tab A. I want the
interactions pane to be associated with the ocaml process from the last
time I clicked run.

The upshot of this is that I want more than one ocaml process to be
around at a time, and I don't want clicking the "run" button to kill all
of them.

It doesn't seem like the code you suggested would solve that problem,
but maybe I'm misreading it?
