To clarify: that was the first proposal (paragraph "OCaml assumptions
as virtual packages" in the paper, Section 3) we came too, ad
DebConf7. Proposal that was rejected by release managers, also
convincing me that it was not a good one.

The (supposedly) good one is to build upon that (paragraph
"Approximated ABI", Section 3).
