Until ocamlopt has an LLVM backend that is not a fair comparison.

I suspect that the speed differences between your HLVM and ocamlopt
have very little to do with LLVM and are almost totally due to 
other factors.

LLVM has well over 20 full time programmers working on it. The
Ocaml compiler has how many?
