Re: mirage + froc = self-scaling?

Just to pick up on this point, the issue is that I think we don't really know 
if FRP can actually be used at scale.  Or at least, noone has tried yet in 
OCaml (some of the Javascript versions are reasonably well used for UI reactive 

So while I agree with the general need for tutorials, I'd probably focus on 
much safer ground such as Lwt/Async ahead of putting FRP on ocaml.org.  
However, a short tutorial on React and Lwt_react would certainly be nice to 
have, if only to understand how to build interesting data structures out of the 
primitives that are exposed.
