[LLVMdev] OCaml bindings to LLVM

I'm having another play with LLVM using the OCaml bindings for a forthcoming 
OCaml Journal article and I have a couple of remarks:

Firstly, I noticed that the execute engine is very slow, taking milliseconds 
to call a JIT compiled function. Is this an inherent overhead or am I calling 
it incorrectly or is this something that can be optimized in the OCaml 

Secondly, I happened to notice that JIT compiled code executed on the fly does 
not read from the stdin of the host OCaml program although it can write to 
stdout. Is this a bug?

Many thanks,
