Provided that is just manual memory management leaked into OCaml from the C++ 
side, the sane thing to do would be to wrap the module in an object and give 
it a finalizer that called dispose_module when OCaml's GC collected the 
object. The only non-trivial aspect is making sure that the OCaml 
representation of the module keeps references to anything that refers back to 
it on the C++ side to ensure that it is not prematurely collected.
