Summary0004164: caml C headers may clash with other C libraries
DescriptionDear dev. team,

All function in caml C headers are prefixed with caml_.
This is not the case for typedef nor macros in mlvalues.h.
See mlvalues.h for example:
typedef intnat value;
typedef uintnat header_t;
typedef uintnat mlsize_t;
typedef unsigned int tag_t; /* Actually, an unsigned char */
typedef uintnat color_t;
typedef uintnat mark_t;
#define Is_long(x) (((x) & 1) != 0)
#define Is_block(x) (((x) & 1) == 0)
#define Val_long(x) (((intnat)(x) << 1) + 1)
#define Long_val(x) ((x) >> 1)

Some of these definitions may clash with other libraries.

Could you provide a cleaner name scheme for all elements in caml headers, and
add the old definitions to compatibility.h ?

Thanks in advance
