I work with various graphical models for AI, which often require  
optimization.  For example, the C++ version of Conditional Random  
Fields (CRFs) enhanced with Virtual Evidence Boosting (VEB) use PETSc  
optimization (TAO).  Having PETSc callable from OCaml would definitely  
bring these methods closer to natural OCaml workflow.
