in thread pissed off about functional programming

So.. you spend five weeks writing a web browser in a strictly O'Caml functional style, then I'll see if I can write an O'Caml imperative version that matches your feature set in one year. Or how about you do your version in O'Caml, and I'll do my version in Java? Again, you get five weeks, and I get a year.
Do it guys, I'd love to see something better in the (free) browser department than Mozilla. (There's a project that could use some desperate refactoring (functional or otherwise))

    You think it’s possible for one guy to rewrite something to the level of completeness that Gecko has reached, within in a year? I’m no fan of the bloat that Gecko has become, but I’m absolutely certain you’re setting yourself up for some disappointment.

    Makeshifts last the longest.
