I use a very simple Curl wrapper.  Rather than exposing all the
knobs that libcurl has, it just exports simple get and post
functions:
    exception Error of string
    val get : string -> string
    val post : url:string -> data:string -> string
    val form : string -> (string * string) list -> string

Contact me if you want a copy.
