Having seen a worrying trend of people submitting package with ad-hoc installers made out of Makefile targets that will fail in various fashions on more constrained switches, I think it would be good to have at least one distribution with a bytecode only switch. This would ensure that packages are able to build in such constrained environment. 

Bytecode only switches are useful for ocaml language/runtime/compiler researchers and to use OCaml on more esoteric platforms that lack native-code support.
