NO! Don't do it! We would have to change all packages that depend
on ocaml-base. And it would be a big mess since the package 
ocaml-base wouldn't provide any longer what it used to provide.
Please leave ocaml-base as it is. The runtime system is the
most basic part of the ocaml system, and it should keep its
name. Why not call the new interpreter package "ocaml-toplevel"
since this is what it provides?
