install mode

* Added support for SHA256 and SHA512 checksums
* Separated the opam format lexer/parser/printers into a separate
`opam-file-format` library

errors or interruptions
* Added `synopsis:` and `description:` fields to integrate package descriptions
in a single package definition file
* Removed the clever hack to skip downloads when uninstalling packages with
`ocamlfind remove`; this now needs to be explicit through the
`light-uninstall` flag.

format, and create the proper OCaml compiler package wrappers

`available:` constraints depending on those. Rewrite the repository
accordingly to use explicit dependencies towards the compiler version.
* Changed license to LGPL 2.1 with linking exception, like OCaml (#2573)

build and install*, or unrelated files could get removed on package uninstall.

defined in `~/.opam/config`; include sample Linux wrappers to restrict process
permissions (e.g. ensure `build:` doesn't install)

more reliable

`compiler` flag set
