Yep. the choices are really 1) only, or 1) and 2). 2) is far easier to
do though (cvs checkout, copying the debian directory, build, upload).
Both will need to pass the ftp-masters and the NEW queue, so assuredly
not available before a few months or so.
Mmm, maybe someone else should upload 1) (with me doing the work in the
SVN repository), as i am in cold with elmo right now (well, again, but
this time not on anything ocaml related).
