This seems like a good idea. I can even contribute my Makefile setup for
it, altough i doubt it is very optimal (it uses recursive makes, which
takes time, but adapting it to versioned binaries took 1 minutes).
BTW, i really hate OcamlMakefile. How do you tell it that no, there is
no ocamlc.opt installed, and that it should not be trying to use it,
even if it is existing on this architecture. (This is bug report #214993
for ara, which i thought the maintainer did fix, but he did not).

Yep, and i need to add ocamake to it too.
