I don't understand you.
The idea is to build one package arch: all which you build with the
bytecode compiler (and without the -custom flag). The resulting
executables will be /usr/bin/ocamlrun script, as can be seen with the
ledit package for example :
$ file /usr/bin/ledit
/usr/bin/ledit: a /usr/bin/ocamlrun script text executable
And then upload a second package which conflicts and replace, and
whatver, which contains the native code version.
