A very simple solution (that I use for PML) would be to change ocaml
so that a directory in the path is considered as a module whose fields are
the modules and directory inside it ... This allows two files to have the same name
and depending if you open or not the module/directory containing an extended string library,
you can access by open String the original or the extended module.

You can even decide that it is possible to assign a .mli file to a directory to hide some
modules inside it ...
