What's the thinking behind removing *.mli by default? Even in packages
which are well documented, the *.mli files are the definitive reference
for programmers. I think they should always be in the -devel subpackage.
Debian even include *.ml files in certain situations:
$ dpkg -S /usr/lib/ocaml/3.08.3/list.ml
Along the same lines I notice that there is no version information in
the path. Early on Debian used the major.minor format (eg.
/usr/lib/ocaml/3.06/) but they found out the hard way that the *.cmo &
*.cmx format can change incompatibly on every release (even bugfixes) so
they now put the full version number in the path. See:
