I would prefer not, as 3.06 as not been dpatchified, and anyway, it is
going to be defunct really soon now. When 3.07 is released, i am going
to do an upload of 3.06-19 to testing-proposed-update, built in a sarge
pbuilder, since i doubt 3.06-19 will go into testing anytime soon since
it is blocked by the libgdbm changes. But it contains many fixes, which
will get lost when we upload 3.07. Maybe i can then start providing a
ocaml-3.06 package for people needing the older version, and which can
then be installable alongside the newer 3.07 which would contain the
plain executables, while the 3.06 would contain the suffixed ones.
