Since there are so many to choose from, there's definitely no point in
preferring one over the other - from your comps.xml patch though it
seems that none of them is offered as optional packages in the OCaml
group. Wouldn't it make sense to add them to that list ?
Yes, I guess it would.
I've hit another really annoying problem though - you can't run the
packagekit management remotely!! Seriously, try running
'gpk-application' on another machine ... So I can't test if my
changes to comps had any effect yet.
