Maybe there should be a new tag in Koji for fixing up all of the Ocaml
packages like was was done for Python 2.6 recently (dist-f11-python)
or Perl 5.10 for F-10 (dist-f10-perl).  Is there an easy way to make
packages tagged with dist-f11-ocaml yum installable so that testing
the packages is easier?
