1. The standard distro is 'authoritative'.

2. The standard distro is a simple tarball,
you don't need to be online 

3. The standard distro is built by a team
working with some support from a National
Government: INRIA has a charter, lawyers,
funding, etc etc.

4. CVS access to INRIA's Ocaml is available for
bleeding edge developers.

No intent to be critical, just trying to answer
the question.

GODI seems quite complex, I don't feel confident
at the moment not only relying on it myself ..
but also expecting my clients to do so.
That may change as it matures, however it does
seem bit Unix centric.
