Ok, I see numerous interesting ideas (I particularly like the idea of
ocamlbuild extended with the ability to download source code from
repositories), but no clear conclusion.

Is there anything clear enough to go forward ? Because if there is, we
can start drafting volunteers to finalize specifications and/or work on
the implementation.
