I use it occasionally with some kernel builds and such.  I think you
can just go ahead and write shell scripts for whatever you want, as
long as you dont mind there being global roots into the ocaml toolchain
(e.g. you have to have some ocaml installed before OPAM will init).

I'd be interested to hear what you do end up using it for... the
constraint solver certainly has applications beyond just the OCaml
use it's being put to at the moment.
