Subject: [Caml-list] Modules with strange names
I've just discovered (on 3.07) that it's possible to create modules
with strange names.  Such modules cannot be opened, except perhaps
with Dynlink.  Bug or feature?

$ vi '$test-123$.ml'
$ ocamlc -c '$test-123$.ml' -o '$test-123$.cmo'
$ ocamlobjinfo '$test-123$.cmo'  
File $test-123$.cmo
  Unit name: $test-123$
  Interfaces imported:
        02d2d3ecd468bb4b226a0591e2ef2bac        Pervasives
        f9ffe6b499332d6552ff0327ccf04812        $test-123$
  Uses unsafe features: no
