Subject: Concurrency [was Re: [Caml-list] Re: Why OCaml rocks]
One of the big reasons I'd like to see single-process concurrency is because I'd like to be able to
hand an arbitrary function to be executed on a different (truly concurrent) thread.  There are very
significant boundaries to passing around arbitrary functions via message passing (multiprocess
concurrency), but the barrier to entry is much lower within the same process.
