ok-- so i guess that needs a switch/env var to specify the `opam switch` to use?

how are they specified -- as a PR?
in which case, masoud-- i guess that
is a starting point for how to specify a particular PR rather than
simply a commit rev.

just to be clear -- you mean does iperf via unikernels, ie., all the
tests that are executed should also be unikernels rather than standard
tools so that we don't take dependencies on an underlying platform
like the dom0?

over to masoud...

cool... (one day i must learn about the cambridge infrastructure machines :)
