Thank you for bringing this to our attention.

I am quite concerned about the upstream part:

 - it looks very (too?) small (120 lines of pure and trivial OCaml
   code, with many blank lines, something that can be copy-pasted into
   the toplevel) to be packaged on its own; what is the true motivation
   of having this packaged in Debian? Is it a dependency of something
   that you are planning to package? Do you have evidence of its
   popularity? On the other hand, ocaml-extunix looks like the ideal
   place to put such stuff... have you tried to have this integrated
 - it looks Linux-specific (/proc)
 - calling "ls -goQ %s | grep -v total" is a no-go... please use
   directly readdir and friends
