I (Vasili) mean wide use of OCaml in the industry. An
example of a FPL that has little chance is Haskell. I
saw one poster on haskell group call it a science
project. I agree. The Haskell is nibbling around the
edges but not providing industrial-strength libraries,
etc. Fortunately OCAML seems to have a big base and a
lot of people working on various projects. HOWEVER,
core functionality like IPV6 socket library code is
not checked in! Why?
