i wondered about that. i guess it might drive opam appropriately (tracking 
packages between switches, making sure things updated, etc?) though it might be 
rather confusing to find that a compilation over here changed the compiler 
switch (and thus available packages) over there. i've found this with opam 
packages like merlin for example... (i forget which switch i'm in and suddenly 
merlin stops working...)

perhaps there's a need to be able to install a package globally (as i believe 
npm allows for node, at least).
