Yes, this is exactly the kind of thing I was referring to. I think a lot of 
people want simple GUIs that are perfectly feasible to construct entirely in 
OCaml and the overhead of splitting a project across languages is much 
higher. Fortunately, LablGTK makes this feasible in OCaml.

There must be some reason why LablGTK is so popular! ;-)
