At the risk of flogging a dead horse...

I still think the simplest and most effective way to improve the 
utility of Ocaml in the construction of large software projects is not 
a CPAN-like distributed source library-- it's a federated naming 
authority for library modules, like you find in the Java Runtime 

This is the *one* glaring hole in the language as far as I'm concerned, 
and if I ever find myself in a position to do something about it-- I 
just might have to hack the tool chain myself to get what I want.  (On 
the other hand, the one glaring hole in the implementation that INRIA 
provides, if you ask me, is the incomplete support for dynamic module 
load/link in native code programs.  This is not that big a problem for 
me, but it would be nice to have.)

In all other respects, I'm more than satisfied-- I'm tickled pink.
