Subject: Label changes in 3.00
On the way to OCaml 3.00, I am thinking of changing a few unlucky
labels in the standard and other libraries.

Since such changes may create incompatibilities in modern mode
programs, labels in the standard library will be fixed after 3.00.
So this is the last chance to correct incongruities.

Currently here is the list of changes I plan to do:

* replace [key:] by [item:] in mem and memq.

* replace [key:] by [item:] in mem, add and remove.

* replace [name:] by [prog:] or [file:] according to the function.

If you have other suggestions please send them to me.


Je pense changer quelques etiquettes malchanceuses dans la
librairie standard, avant de sortir OCaml 3.00.

De tels changements pouvant entrainer des incompatibilites dans les
programmes ecrits en mode moderne, les etiquettes (au moins de la
librairie standard) devraient etre definitivement fixees apres la
version 3.00. C'est donc la derniere chance d'apporter des

Le corrections envisagees actuellement sont:

List: remplacer [key:] par [item:] dans mem et memq.

Set: remplacer [key:] par [item:] dans mem, add et remove.

Unix: remplacer [name:] par [prog:] ou [file:] suivant la fonction.

Si vous avez des suggestions supplementaires, envoyez les moi.
