Not especially for multicore, but for parallel programming,
this might be of interest:

(To mention this by me also is recurrent, as the thread we are in...)


P.S.: During the last multicore discussion, I found that link,
      but had not tried OCamlp3l. Now I think I will have more
      time and motivation and it could be compiled and installed
      without any problems with OCaml 3.10.2.
