Hi Ben,

I'm quite happy to send these patches in, pplacer has been near the
top of my most wanted list since I started contributing. There's two
parts that are a little out of the ordinary:

1) Unfortunately pplacer requires the outdated OCaml 4.01, so I
adapted the package-with-python2 approach.
Is there really no way upstream could update the package to current
OCaml?  That would save us a lot of packages and associated work.

I'm afraid I don't think so. I asked about this, but haven't received a response for 3 weeks.

The recommended way of installing this software is to download binaries, so updating the OCaml dependency may not be at the top of the priority list. This is maintained software and there's a number of pieces of software which rely on pplacer (including a few of my own), so I think it is worth packaging. So, IMO we should wear the costs on this one.
