You're right, but anyway the packages that need the versioned libraries
dependencies are a strict subset of the packages that need rebuild due
to ocaml standard library location change.

So my proposal is that you upload a new version of the ocaml package
(shipping the old ocaml policy, but this is not a problem) then I will
rebuild packages which have the versioned dependency problem just to try
that it works.

Then, if all works as I suppose, you (all) can start rebuilding stuff
that need the "new" trick.

Obviously packages that don't need this .cmi dependency hell (mainly all
non-library packages and all library packages which don't depend on
other ocaml libraries) can be rebuilt as soon as the new ocaml package
enters the archive.
