No, the OCaml code (compiled with ocamlopt) is much, much slower than the C++. 
As we all know, this can mean only one thing...

Also, his C++ is actually shorter than the OCaml, and the OCaml defines a lot 
of familiar looking functions (map, length, "prepend" etc.).

I'll take a more detailed look in a minute...
