Subject: Functional Reactive Programming in OCaml?
I'm sure that, like me, many of you have experienced language-envy when you've seen the very cool libraries for Functional Reactive Programming (Fran, Frob, Yampa, etc.) that have been implemented in the Haskell world.

Has anybody tried to do something similar in OCaml?  At first sight, it does not seem trivial: the implementations of FRP that I've seen make good use of many of Haskell's special features -- laziness, type classes and qualified types, monads, etc...

Thanks for any pointers,

    - Benjamin
