[opam-devel] [RFC] Switch and package configuration variables

It seems we sometimes need to let package expose some of their configuration abilities to end-user (case in point nocrypto using the cpu extensions or not). 

It should also be easier to define per switch configuration variables (which e.g. may help the recent non-discussion about windows ports and cross-compilation). 

Since I was thinking about how this could be integrated with assemblage this lead me to write down a proposal here:


I'm really not fond of the input/output configuration variable naming scheme I used, maybe user/state configuration variable would be better ? 

Feedback welcome,
