[ocaml-platform] "opam config env" and emacs

So the usual way of doing that is to use Emacs package manager (ELPA),
and package the lisp part of the packages separately.


provides all the licensing goodies to make the life easier.

What would also work to call Emacs from OPAM to automatically evaluate
needed expression and install the package in Emacs, this is risky for my
configuration, but might work in majority of cases. Others might prefer
other solutions of course.
