Our problem is having too many incompatible IO system, not the lack of
IO.  So, what we need is the standard, not the code.

Of course, if some IO library is widespread, then it will become de
facto standard.  I advise you to look existing IO systems for smooth
integration/migration.  In particular, the IO system of ocamlnet
deserves a close look, because it is well thought and widly used.

BTW, I think this is one of the problems of OCaml community.  We do
not know each other's work well, while too much being bombarded by
hypes from Java/Perl/Python/C#...
