This is just an FYI and so it's documented somewhere.
I'm on OSX Mountain Lion and just tried a `brew reinstall opam`. It 'unexpectedly' failed for me as aspcud is a recommended dependency and one of its dependencies (gringo) requires Mavericks. I say 'unexpected' as I'd assumed homebrew would detect the failure and proceed without that dependency. However, I just learned that's not how it works .
To install opam via homebrew on Mountain Lion, the incantation is now `brew install opam --without-aspcud'. To avoid other users coming across this, I've edited the opam wiki  to add this line and also the RWO install wiki .
Note: I'm not intending to move to Mavericks in the immediate future so if there are Mountain Lion specific things people need/want to try, please let me know.
