OK, as long as we are at it, the first few chapters of Mark Lillibridge's 
thesis are also acceptable to the lay reader, though reading the whole 
thing is overkill for the "working programmer" (as opposed to the 
unemployed type theorist ;-)

This page has just the parts that Chris (and probably others) want to

Since lots of people have issues with the amount of documentation, it
might be helpful if, once that person has an answer to their question, 
they write the text that they wish they'd seen in the first place, and 
submit it for inclusion in the Caml docs. I'm thinking of doing something
like that for the various "mutual recursion" issues, if there is interest.
Of course, I hope Tom and crew make such a document irrelevant by fixing 
the problems...

Is there a good reference (book, tutorial paper, website, whatever) that talks about modules in an in-depth way?  I've read the chapter 4 on them in the help materials, and I want more.  I was trying to understand the group example someone posted to the list a few days back, and I think I need to find a good book or something to understand the real power of modules.
