It is awfully useful. I was trying to setup an OPAM repository for simplifying the review of PR#22,
but you did it for me and all the others, thank you.

 I'm just wondering if it is wise to add all these switches to the default OPAM repository. For
casual ocaml user the useful switches are lost among all these PR.

  Perhaps the default possible switches can be reduced to the last releases (for people that work on
project that must support old version of ocaml) and to the beta and trunk for people that are
curious of the accepted new features.

  For ocaml compiler hackers a specific OPAM repository with all the svn branches and github PR can
be setup.

What do you think?
