Out of curiosity: is CSML specific to Windows or not? The available info
are ambiguous about that: your announcement does not say anything about
that, while the web page starts mentioning "the community of OCaml
developers under Windows". Can in principle CSML be used on GNU/Linux,
for example on top of Mono? (I guess at the very least a release of a
different binary-only compiler will be needed, but still ...)

Also, please note that the README linked from the website has an
important ambiguity in the licensing terms. It reads: "The compiler can
be freely used but it cannot be not redistributed without the express
permission of LexiFi SAS." (note the double negation); you probably want
to fix it.

Cheers.
