The dev stuff is ~5 MB, half of the package size (10MB).
I'm not familiar with ocaml. What would be the inconvenience in having
a separate -dev pkg? Would a user just want to use it at run-time only
or it's an unlikely scenario?
From Alpine packaging perspective only, 5 MB less in the system are
definitely worthy a pkg separation.
