    If this can cheer you up a bit, last year in University of Nantes 
the two fourth year projects that got the joint best mark were written 
in OCaml (one was a spell checking framework for African languages and 
the other was a library for parallel programming, there's a link to it 
in the Humps). So you see teaching a language *can* convince people to 
use it later...
