What do you mean by vm?  OCaml doesn't have a vm like the jvm.  Although 
there's been some great work on compiling OCaml for the jvm.  OCaml does have 
a toplevel interpreter.  It even has a native mode toplevel now that's 
suppose to be fast (anyone have any experience with this?).  So that's good.  
And of course as you pointed out you can always compile OCaml code to native 
machine code which has always had good performance.
