Very interesting! We will try to make Eliom Client (the client side 
programming framework for Ocsigen) work on it.

A summary of solutions to use Ocaml for client side programming:
 - OcamlJs (by Jake Donham): compiler OCaml -> JS
 - O'Browser (by Benjamin Canou): Ocaml virtual machine written in JS
 - NaCl/Ocaml: native code! (but requires Native client to be installed and 
only x86 for now)
 - and there may also be a compiler Ocaml bytecode -> JS soon ;-)
