Hi,

Is this hyperbole or hard numbers?  Since I finally managed to use natdynlink
on an AMD64 machine (see Alain Frisch's today's message to this list), I ran
some simple benchmarks on a dummy Ocsigen application generating dynamic pages.
The results were more than good enough for my purposes, though I can't really
compare them with other languages/frameworks:

Could Ocsigen be a killer app for Ocaml?  Should we think of setting up
a simple "web framework shootout"?  (Though personally I think the
advantages of Ocsigen go way beyond speed).

Cheers,
Dario Teixeira
