Summary0004121: Please export byterun/io.h
DescriptionIt would be very useful for people who want to write custom I/O code using channels if byterun/io.h were exported, i.e. if this file were among the other header files that can already be accessed. Otherwise developers have to copy it from the distribution, which might break code if io.h gets updated in a new OCaml-release.

Ok, this suggestion is actually not that trivial. It unfortunately requires that the configuration header files, etc., are also installed. I am not sure whether this is a good idea, but given that the installation is architecture specific anyway, it may be.

It might also be easy enough for users to just copy the type definition of the channel structure and use their own typedefs for e.g. the file_offset to make things work. But if there is an easy way to make use of the local OCaml-configuration, this would be even better.
