Ok, but this entails having the Ocaml toolchain installed on your
internet-facing server. Mine (which runs Debian squeeze) didn't have this.
It took literally 25 minutes to get all the necessary stuff (a recent
Ocaml compiler, opam, oasis, etc) installed before I could run "make" in
the ocaml.org directory.

That's probably enough effort to deter at least some potential
