Subject: Relicensing OCaml

I just ploughed through the CAML Consortium legal document to find out what a 
consortium member can do and was quite surprised to find (p. 13) that they 
are able to redistribute under any license of their choosing.

So any of the Consortium members can simply republish the core OCaml 
distribution under LGPL, BSD or whatever and then we can get on with 
improving it and not having to worry about patches and backward 
compatibility... :-)
