Err, when you have many .cmis ?

Basically, it could just be a shell script snipplet in the ocaml
packaging policy document, or something such, which would enable to
check all .cmi in two different trees or something such, calling objinfo
recursively. It would make things easier for the developpers, and not
need that each one have to find its own solution, and maybe decide not
to bother.

Err, you will not necessarily have something to check it with. It is
easier and more secure to check the .cmis.

Mmm, i hadn't thought about this.

About your two other mails, i have gotten the findlib stuff now, and
will add the two parts about this one and the one about the .sos in my
next package together with the .cmi stuff you will send me.
