Sorry, but this is not true. You can use Godi with Ocaml 3.10 by passing
"-section 3.10" to the bootstrap script.

It is right is that Godi for Ocaml 3.10 is not yet publicly announced.
The reason is that a few libraries are not kept up-to-date. In
particular, there are still libraries using camlp4 that are not
available for 3.10. So we simply cannot recommend blindly upgrading to
3.10 yet.

It is unclear how we go on. Maybe we drop some libraries.
