Thanks for the great writeup Simon!
I do wonder why Thomas thinks that OPAMROOT is a bad solution though. It
seems quite clean to me -- you can have an OPAM installation pointing to
(e.g.) /usr/local/opam and either add that your global PATH or symlink binaries
This could be scripted up with a fairly trivial shell script (caveat: that I
haven't actually written).
