It is, if people could confirm to me that the existing ones work first on Raring.  There's a certain manual effort in supporting the older versions that I'll script up if the existing packages do the job.

And please do note that these PPA packages are really intended to be all you need to bootstrap OPAM and do source-based development.  They're really not intended to supplant the full range of binary packages that the Debian OCaml team develops, nor be held to the same quality standard as their packages.

Most of this PPA was based on the excellent Debian package sources, and thanks to Mehdid Dogguy in particular for the OPAM packaging.
