Re: [Xen-API] RFC: Shuffling xen-api-libs

Another possibility is to install them in a different location - ie., ocamlfind 
install destdir=/usr/lib/ocaml/xapi - these then don't show up in 'ocamlfind 
list' unless you set OCAMLPATH env var. They might even be usable if you 
specify e.g. -package xen/stdext, though I've not tried this.

The packages can then 'graduate' to the normal place as and when they become 
useful/usable/not-embarrassing :-)
