Just an aside-- but this is why
most games are utter crap. The developers have no idea
how to develop high level code, so they focus on weenie
details of graphics, and as a result we have stunning
high performance motion interfacing to the most banal
rubbish I have ever seen. As time goes by things just
seem to get worse.

I sure hope using Ocaml can help to fix this problem,
and allow the real game programmers to focus
on game design -- the way they did in the days
of Zork when all that pretty embellishment just
wasn't possible.
