We had this dicussion already earlier on this list. At that time we
agreed *not* to activate automaticallt tuareg-mode for *.ml* files
since the ocaml package provids another emacs mode for editing
.ml files. Hence, the decision at that time was that the user shoulde
decide for himself which emacs mode he wans to use.
