It looks like the fix is small and easy — I think this is good for now.

Let’s postpone requiring a later OCaml version until we really need a feature only present in a later version. I suspect this will happen eventually, probably when we try to add a dependency (e.g. from the Mirage world) which requires 4.02+.
