What's the current plan for Ocaml in Karmic? Update to 3.11.1 or stay
with 3.11.0?

I've seen that ocaml 3.11.1 is already in unstable and that some ocaml
packages have a versioned build-dependency on it. I wanted to see if
camlimages can be synced to karmic (because of the CVE fix) and got
stopped by it. Should I try to apply the fix on camlimages in Karmic or
wait for the transition?
