Written as this it sounds like an undeniable desirable property :-)
I mean: how do you define a "major reason"? The only reason I see, ever,
for a backport of ocaml is a new upstream release. Our upstream rarely
does releases for silly reasons, and releases tend to stay stable for
several months.

Is a new upstream release a major reason in your opinion?
