+1 for the last reason, the tuareg-mode is much better (and of course,
available in the AUR )
Additionally, the 'emacs-ocaml-mode' PKGBUILD has to download the
whole OCaml sources just to install a single .el file...
Either include it in the official 'ocaml' package in [extra], either
don't use it at all. The first solution would not be worth it (since
nobody would be using it) and it could conflicts with the tuareg-mode.
So, +1 for deletion. It's out-of-date and orphaned anyway.
