I'm curious why F# (as I understood it), implements Caml from scratch instead 
of just changing the bytecode compiler in Caml a bit to suite its needs.

By the way, are there benchmarks comparing code produced by ocamlc, ocamlopt 
and F# (together with SML.NET and SML/NJ for that matter) on a variety of 
algorithm and numerics-intensive tasks?

IIRC, when .NET/C# just came out, there were claims that it was almost as fast 
as C.
