If you really just need this, you could:
- get the reverse dependency cone, as before
- try the coinstallation of cohttp and each member of this cone. If the solver returns no solution, just skip, otherwise check that all goes well:
for p in $(opam list --rec --short --sort --depends-on $COHTTP); do
if opam install --show $COHTTP $p; then opam install $COHTTP $p; fi
Note that not specifying the version will just make OPAM choose the installed version, or failing that the highest available: it won't aggregate results for all versions.
The `--short` format doesn't print any version numbers: if it's a shortcoming that should be fairly easy to improve; also, as Roberto said, any package that has a (possibly transitive) dependency to cohttp that may include that version will be included, even if it's not coinstallable.
To resolve in one step, I guess we could compute the set of packages coinstallable with this version of cohttp using Dose, and then take the intersection. (Or rather, the packages _not_ coinstallable and the difference ?)
