Subject: [Caml-list] Do you like files as modules?
I am seeking your feelings and comments on the following issue.
Many programming languages, including Python and Ocaml,
but excluding C and C++, have a concept of a module
such that translation units are also modules.

In both Ocaml and Python, the module name is also
coupled to the filename.

Which technique do you prefer? Why? What advantages
and disadvantages does each have? How is the 
compiler architectural model coupled to program
semantics, optimisation, separate compilation,
and linkage, and should it be?
