Subject: Re: [Caml-list] JoCaml Released.
A couple of questions:

   - Why is it that JoCaml is a full OCaml distribution as opposed to
   just a set of libraries plus a syntax extension.  Was there some particular
   feature that required hacking the compiler directly, or was it just more
   convenient to build it that way?
   - What do you think the future of JoCaml is?  Any thoughts on whether
   it will be supported in the future, and in particular whether it will get
   merged back into the OCaml mainline tree?

It's very encouraging to see the community doing so much work in this area.
The new JoCaml looks quite interesting.
