Rather far.  Don't quote me, I know only what I've read about F# and
am not sure I know that, but lots of Objective CAML was tossed, and
of course there's a lot of .NET.  The syntax apparently uses significant
white space, so that's one huge step forward if it works - the standard
Objective CAML syntax is quite evil in that respect.  But I believe the
interesting parts are gone: modules, and the OOP implementation, which
I have the impression might be one of the more respectable OO designs.
