Thank you very much, Stéphane.  That looks much better than my
attempt, so I've copied it to the official (pkg-ocaml-maint/packages)
location and will push further development there.  Feel free to remove
your test/ copy.

Now, can someone explain the benefit to using pristine-tar in this
situation?  The repo has the upstream source, and git-buildpackage can
build the orig.tar.gz from it, so where does pristine-tar come in?
I'm sure I'm missing something very basic ...
