Concurrency has to be on that list as well though. F# inherits concurrency 
from .NET and it is vastly easier to use than the last time I tried 
concurrency (on a supercomputer, in Fortran).

However, a recent thread discussed the fledgling development of concurrency 
for OCaml and it sounded fascinating (although I still haven't found time to 
read it in detail!).
