Uhm, I'm curious: how do you plan to achieve that?
AFAICT the patch is only against 3.10.2, and in Debian we're at 3.11.1.

Thus far, we have never had support for more than one version of OCaml
at a time. If it were worth we can surely consider that, but the current
uncertainty about OC4MC future doesn't seem enough to justify that.

So, the real question is: is OC4MC going to be ported to mainline OCaml
and support in the future or not? If the answer is "no", I don't see it
arriving in Debian anytime soon.

Cheers.
