AOL on this kind of feature request.

With OCaml we have been prone for years with potential module
namespace conflicts. Those conflicts have been thought to be solved by
-pack, which nowadays is finally easy to use via ocamlbuild.

Still, if using it thoroughly we are back to the square 1 of having to
link everything together, then it is not a viable solution for large
libraries.

Cheers.
