Ah, that's 'cause I've got a huge application written (by others, I'm just 
the GUI bunny) in Ocaml. They're not real happy with the current parser 
(it's kind of crufty I believe), so would be happy to replace it, so long as 
the data is available in the Ocaml world. Parsing config files isn't the 
apps main job :).
