Hi David,

I added both haXe (http://haxe.org) and Neko (http://nekovm.org) to the
list of your web frameworks.

Since the haXe compiler is written in OCaml, that might interest some
people on this list as well. haXe is an high-level OO language with a
modern type system (type inference, enums, ML polymorphism). It targets
three platforms :
  - it has a Javascript/AJAX code generator so you can use it to code
the client side of your website.
  - it has a Neko code generator that can be used with NekoVM to write
the server side of your website : NekoVM is a small embeddable VM with a
"mod" for Apache.
  - it has a Flash/SWF generator so you can use haXe to develop Flash
RIA and other applications.
