This sounds a bit like Lutz Prechelt's study (see 
http://page.mi.fu-berlin.de/~prechelt/Biblio/jccpprt_computer2000.pdf), 
except that there was only one problem, the implementers were 
self-selected and not necessarily gurus.

Unsurprisingly, scripting languages took the least time to write and 
had the lowest LOC.  OCaml wasn't part of the study, but the 
methodology was interesting.
