don't think it's anything to do with non-http remotes. ok-- just to be clear 

+ we're only interested in opam.1.1.0 *not* in opam.1.0.0

+ the correct default opam repo to use is http://opam.ocaml.org


in which case i'm fine, things build under those conditions. but i'll strip out 
the needless tests from the .travis.yml in at least a few repos; and could you 
update your ppa sometime so that the default opam remote is opam.ocaml.org 
rather than opam.ocamlpro.org please?

patches to ocaml-cow to support omd (requires omd >= 0.8 or so), required by 
patches to cowabloga and (soon perhaps) mirage-www (and right now, my new
