If it weren't for the Pkg-ocaml-maint policy that all packages are to
be debian packages this would be a native package. It is bad enough
the source is split between 2 git repositories. I'm not going to split
changelogs as well. Otherwise the debian changelog would only say "new
upstream version" on verry nearly every release.
