The whole of my distro consists of literate programmed
sources under a single licence. If I consider you an
unstable/unreliable source, I have to physically
include your sources with mine in a wrapped up
form.

I simply cannot require my clients require
their clients require downloading and installing
20 different third party Ocaml/C packages just
to get the Felix *compiler* to work, or spend
week analysing my code to decide which parts
are FFAU and which LGPL.

Stick PCRE in the standard Ocaml distro and
the problem goes away entirely. 

Hmm. Perhaps this is one way of expressing it:

My product is part of the Bazaar but it has
pretensions of being its own Cathedral and so
can't depend on the rest of the Bazaar,
only on other Cathedrals.

Arms length is OK. Two arms length is not :)
