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 ocaml-nox: /usr/lib/ocaml/3.08.3/list.mlAlong 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.
