Yes, this has been discussed extensively on the batteries-devel archive.
That's why this release is called "Batteries Included 1.0.0" and not
"AAA batteries" as initially thought.

On this, I also have a very brief public service announcement: the
Debian package ocaml-batteries-included will, obviously, migrate to this
1.0.0 release. If any of the readers has good reason to want to keep
both this and the old-style Batteries please mail me, but note that the
old code is currently unmaintained, so I'd support that at worst for a
single release cycle (so you better be convincing).
