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.I replaced it in ocaml-SDL and ocaml-camlimages with ocamldoc generated html references, which seems to be pretty much the same as the individual mli files.
But I wanna use 'less'!Seriously, I don't want to fire up a browser just to check an interface. Even the text mode browsers have serious UI problems compared to
'less /usr/lib/ocaml/3.08.3/list.mli'.Is there any reason why *.mli files can't be included in a -devel package? I'm not talking about the main library package where it would add bloat, but in a package which would only need to be installed by developers.
