Right, I was exaggerating, but from the slides I mostly read as a kind
of "bugs"

- Memory usage tracing
- ExceptionHandling
- Tracing and Logging

which is about the same with any highlevel language.

Personally I do not really care about the choice of the language, I
could learn haskell for instance.  It just happens that I already
had tinkered with embedding libcamlrun.a in a small kernel (see the
funk project on gna) so it was quite easy for me to write support for
ocaml-based stubdomains.  Contributions are welcome to do the same for
any other highlevel language ;)
