So I think I know why this is bad, it thinks that jane lives in the root 
directory of my project.  This is probably a result of my line ocaml_lib 
"jane" in myocamlbuild.

Removing that, I'm not sure how I should specify to live_query.native 
that it needs to use jane.cmxa (otherwise, it seems to think it only 
needs jane.cmx).
