On minor point, though: are you aware of other binaries in a similar
situation? The patch to enable non-custom build was not trivial and, had I not
been upstream as well, I wonder whether an upstream developper would want to
work on it or a DD be able to create one alone...
Enabling non-custom build for pure OCaml applications should be trivial.
But indeed, if the application has C stubs of its own (I'm not talking

build and use the shared library with C stubs (dll*.so file), which can
be quite intrusive. If this is done, it should probably be done in
coordination with upstream. But I don't expect upstream to do it on its
own... I am under the impression that most people don't care about
