I thought there'd be more interest in the C bindings, personally, so  
I'm pleasantly surprised by the vigorous response to the Ocaml  
bindings. I suppose the primary audience for C bindings are FFIs for  
other languages, so perhaps it's not an entirely surprising result in  

Regardless, I don't think you need to worry about them going anywhere  
now that the portability problems have been ironed out of the makefiles.
