The compiler version is a command-line option:


I wonder whether it'd be more reliable to use the source branch in the
pull request as the 'src' for the switch.  For example, for #6,
instead of generating

    src: https://github.com/ocaml/ocaml/archive/4.0.2.tar.gz
    patches: https://github.com/ocaml/ocaml/pull/6.diff

we might simply have

   src: https://github.com/hnrgrgr/ocaml/archive/type_constraint_warning.tar.gz
