How significant is Isabelle as an integrative platform for OCaml?  The
code generator checks have been intended as a mere device to ensure that
nothing falls into disrepair (with all consequences regarding
infrastructure maintenance), but not as a development tool by itself.

So I would like to focus:
* What (upcoming) maintenance challenges are we facing?
* Are there particular applications out there which suggest more
integration with ocaml?
* …

Cheers,
