Flattery will get you everywhere ;-).
We are agreed now on SML, using SMLNJ. Our flirtation with OCaml was
based on convenience and familiarity, but as I noted in another
message, we were committed to using a small core language, plus
continuation support of some kind (for OCaml this meant a patch; with
SMLNJ, no patch).
Dave will post to LtU soon, I'm sure.
