I wouldn't call this shooting myself in the foot. It's pretty much my default option when I've had issues with the solver (I'm not on mavericks). 

As a user, I've been pretty pleased that I can blow away .opam if I have problems and just get packages again. This is less painful than it used to be as my system compiler is now 4.01.0 so I can make switches easily.
