Well, besides the documentation generation stuff, I also like the
documentation strings of lisp (i.e. (describe 'xyz) and the comments of
objects in smalltalk (i.e. Integer comment printnl!). Something similar
to this in Ocaml would be great. Perhaps a let...with_comment...
construct? As in:
let f x y = ...
with_comment "f takes two arguments..."

This could also easily be used for the documentation generation.

But I'm rather new to Ocaml, so I'm not sure if anything I just said
made sense :-)
