the OCaml implementation of xenstored scales better (according
to the paper) and is more stable (according to A.J.G. further
upthread); I guess it won't be optional soonish. Don't shoot the
messenger; I only fixed the rpath building, and threw a few comments
at Aaron's other patches.

(Personally, my users demand OCamL anyway, so it's not an additional
build for me; and it's much faster to build than Erlang or Haskell and
I think also than Perl; don't know about Python).
