Good point. Not that i know of any technical aspect that prevents us doing so.
It's just that adding this patch was a matter of 15 minutes versus adapting
and sorting out all the patches that won't work with 3.12.1, and there's a
couple of them, i tried that.
I'm not sure how much effort it takes to make 3.12.1 work, so i would propose
patching 3.12.0 as a short term solution to minimize package "downtime".
Also i'm not really savvy on the ocaml side, i'm only an end user of the
net/unison package. Which makes it hard for me to tell the hazard potential of
updating to 3.12.1.
