All right then. I had sometime in the past worked out an alternatives
mechanism for the tuareg-mode package but I cannot find these files
anymore :-( I will try to restore it from (human) memory and put it
into the svn repo of tuareg-mode, then everybody who is interested
can have a look at it and see how to integrate it with ocaml-mode.
Does anyone know another example of debian packages where a
choice between modes is managed by /etc/alternatives?
