You can already do something similar:

opam pin add foo https://github.com/mirage/foo.git#SHA1

Libraries in mirage-dev are in flux and people using it should expect breakage 
-- reporting these breakages on the list or on GitHub is *very* useful to 
converge to a stable state. Once stabilised, libraries are supposed to be 
properly release and migrate (in bulk) to opam-repository. Or we can have a 
mirage-dev-dev repository to avoid this but I would rather avoid this :p
