Subject: Re: [Caml-list] Namespace proposal

The namespace proposal brings up a related issue.  Is there any interest in
having a more formal process for making requests for enhancements to the
ocaml language analogous to (e.g.) the Python Enhancement Proposals (PEPs)
for python (http://www.python.org/peps) or similar processes for perl,
ruby, and java?  I can see advantages and disadvantages to this approach.
The advantage is that there is an organized record of proposals, commentary
on proposals, etc.  The disadvantage is that I suspect that a lot of
feature requests might be unimplementable or require a huge amount of
research to see if they're implementable (e.g. generically overloaded
operators), as opposed to PEPs, which are generally fairly trivial.  What
do people think?
