The way to get a library of important utilities
for Ocaml is to (a) make interfaces to C and (b) write the code
in Ocaml.

The main argument for interoperability isn't to get commonly
available modules from other languages -- its to get access
to *custom* code written for other systems.

Apart from Swing .. well what common Java library
would be remotely interesting in Ocaml?
