OCaml 3.09.3 has been released on September 15th.

We, debian ocamlers, feel ready for the new transitions. Regarding your
points: (1) should be done by now (I see the same version of python in
both testing and unstable), (2) should not be a problem for this release
of ocaml which is only a bug fix release. Regarding the possible issue
of more strict toolchains, a problem we encountered in the past, we
uploaded ocaml 3.09.3rc1 to unstable and it has been successfully built
on i386, amd64, sparc and kfreebds-i386 by the experimental building

I hereby ask for permission to go ahead with the 3.09.3 transition,
starting to upload the ocaml package to unstable.
