I'm not familiar with the kind of project that can be done from start to 
finish that short a time. I just can't say how common they are. But 
anyway, great if OCaml can give such a boost, there.

My experience is from projects eating up several person years of effort. 
There coding speed isn't necessarily the limiting factor.
