In fact I don't know exactly how the new -t and apt-pinning stuff work,
but even if it download all the dependencies probably is not a good idea
to upgrade libc6 to a sid version for a stable/debian. Is better to
rebuild the packages.

I'm working on it, I've just finished (up to debugging) an almost
automatic mechanism to rebuild ocaml related packages from sid to woody.
When all will be up and running I'm planning to advertise an official
(limited to the debian ocaml community) apt-gettable repository of
rebuilt packages.

Don't know, I have planned to read the regarding section of the new
debian developers reference, but I haven't yet done it :-)
