Summary0006413: Ast_mapper should display a more helpful message on version mismatch
DescriptionCurrently, an extension will fail with the following error:

    Failure("Ast_mapper: unknown magic number")

It is clear to those familiar with object file format, but not mere users. It would be way better to phrase it like

    Failure("Ast_mapper: OCaml version mismatch or malformed input")
TagsNo tags attached.
