Yes. altough you would need the ocaml 3.06 packages, so i am not sure if
this would be easily doeable with pbuilder or something such.
It may also cause serious problems with the autobuilders, so we would
have to build them by hand, i think, Mmm, this is a nice solution, but
doesn't sound as easy as it seems.

Naturally there will be side effects, the package will be uninstallable,
but the idea is to have it enter testing quickly, once it has entered
testing, we can upload the new package again.
Alternatively, we can upload to testing-upgrade.
I think the best idea is to do it one of the two ocaml-3.06 ways,
preferably the first, and reserve the second option for ocaml 3.07.
