I wouldn't be against mandating OPAM 1.2 be used, just because the
development workflow is just so much better.  I would just like a
configure check in the `mirage` tool to enforce that before we switch
off all the testing though.

On the OCaml front, supporting 4.01 and 4.02 is indeed correct.
Some libraries (such as websocket) have gone 4.02-only now, and that
needs some care.

Definitely -- a system requirements page of sorts in the installation
section of the site would be good.
