Well, I would like to see a community process for selecting,
implementing, documenting and maintaining a set of good algorithms
which go IN THE STANDARD DISTRIBUTION (under the usual LGPL+X licence,
with a disclaimer the code base isn't maintained by Inria, merely
distributed on behalf of the community).

So Inria should provide the repository, and the Ocaml team has
a final veto on selection .. but the work is done by outside

So please would the High Priests of the Cathedral like
to run a little Bazaar for their disciples?
