grep-dctrl -n -FBuild-Depends,Build-Depends-Indep ocaml -sPackage \

The biggest problem won't be the packages which will fail, but those
which will build, but make broken debs. I grepped through the packages
in svn and found that the following packages are in this case (because
they will install files in /usr/lib/ocaml/3.09.0/ or hardcode 3.09.0 in
the package, while not build-depending on 3.09.0 specifically):
The following packages will need a source upload as well (because their
build-deps won't work with 3.09.1):
All other lib packages seem to allow for binNMUs for this kind of
transition, and there are other packages I didn't look at yet (mostly
packages containing an ocaml program, which will need a rebuild if it
isn't built with ocamlc -custom on architectures lacking ocamlopt.
