Thanks for the README.
 Pierre mentioned he is going to port the examples to Ocaml.

They also may not be a good entry point for total newcomers.
The examples from the CamlLight distribution seem like the right
type. Simple yet complete enough to see a combination of
different topics (loops, input from user, etc..).

Need for more volunteers?
It is a cycle. The easier we make it for new people to join, the

Yes. Much of the documentation would make much more sense if one
had a few examples to read. This is particularly the case for
the syntax of functions on the Standard Library (Chaper 19 of
the Ocaml Manual)
