Subject: Interface manipulation patches
Back in December Piotr Wieczorek sent a couple patches for the O'Caml
compiler to the mailing list [1].  They dealt mostly with manipulating
interfaces, in particular adding the ability to

1) "export" a module when packing
2) treat .cmis as module types
3) import interfaces sans selected fields
4) retype .cmo files

These patches are great for a library developer... in the library I am
currently developing (O'Caml RT) I have an immediate use for (1), (3),
and (4), and I have had a need for (2) in the past.

I'm wondering if these patches have been considered for inclusion in
the official O'Caml tree, and, if not, what it would take to get them
