Jerome,

Thank you, this sounds fantastic!  

One small question: could you expand on your last comment:

Do you mean all tail-calls come a large cost, or only those outside of plain tail-recursion?  Either way, could you give us some more intuition as to why this happens, and why js_of_ocaml doesn't suffer from the same problem (assuming it applies to tail-recursion)?

Thanks,
Yitzhak
