Ok, can I do this too? I would install in:

I understand. What happens, if I upgrade my Ocaml? Does the old
directory get deleted due to a conflict removing the old
Ocaml package first?
I can cope with that temporarily -- just tell people to
cp -R /usr/lib/felix/felix-1.1.2 /usr/local/felix/
or perhaps copy to ~/felix as they see fit -- if they want to save
the old version. I won't be installing my own package .. I don't
want any installed version because it will interfere with testing
the development version. Also why I don't install Ocaml via
Debian -- I like to play beta-tester for the Inria CVS version.
