Subject: Re: [Caml-list] OCaml standard library improvement
I'm all in favor of improving the standard library, but...

  1) I agree that such a project will be most useful if there is some
     kind of strong unifying vision

  2) I suggest looking at the SML Basis Library for ideas -- the people
     that designed it thought a *lot* about consistent naming and such.
     (In fact, would it be a bad idea just to *copy* the SML basis APIs

  3) I question whether this is actually the most-needed thing... see
     next message...
