I definitely think we should do this, but I think we should do it
after 1.40 is out, as basically the first commit after the release.
It's too big a change to do suddenly just before the stable release
and the new libvirt-ocaml isn't widely available in distros.  (I
thought I said this in the review, but I can't find it in the mailing
list archives right now ...)

That's fine, we can wait for these.
