You missed:
  ocaml-core |     3.06.3 |      unstable | all
  ocaml-libs |     3.06.3 |      unstable | all
  meta-ocaml |     3.06.3 |      unstable | source

Since ocaml-libs apparently breaks, this needs to go too.

Interesting point; but yes, I didn't mean that it was a useful thing for
this particular example.

Like I said, they need to be specifically approved. Grep for "NEEDS
APPROVAL BY RM" in update_excuses.

Yes; you were. I'm focussing on gcc and perl and such things at the
moment, and as of yet no one else is really able to do anything about this
stuff while I'm busy; hopefully both those things will change soon enough.
