I'm not sure it's such bad news. The company I work is making pretty 
succesful use of OCaml at the moment, and there are a few others out there 
doing the same. I just didn't see much interest in the kind of document Jon 
described. We're already past the part where we had to convince people to 
take a gamble on developing in OCaml. So far, it's gone pretty well...
