Is it not overkill already to try to have up-to-date with the lastest OCaml version compatibility 
packages? If it is needed and possible why don't we do that for all the stdlib? Should we use the 
compatibility package for version of the compiler that are not the latest?

Currently, I think compatibility package up-to-date with the first compiler version that introduces 
it is enough.
