I read him as asking for .ml files to contain what .mli files now
contain - i.e. method/function declarations

Example -

val init: int -> (int -> char) -> string

let init n f =
  let s = make n (f 0) in
  for i=1 to n-1 do
    set s i (f i);

OCaml doesn't permit this at the moment because val statements go in
.mli files (or in sig blocks) only.
