Summary0004622: Ocamlbuild needs support for generating documentation from implementation files
DescriptionAccording to the Ocamlbuild manual, "generating documentation in formats other than HTML or from implementations is not supported". However, the latter feature is *very* useful, especially for projects that are already using Ocamlbuild for all other purposes.

Actually, this seems to be more of a documentation issue: the Ocamlbuild manual is misleading in this regard. Nevertheless, being able to merge the documentation from mli and ml files is also a welcome feature.

correct me if I am wrong but looks like adding the corresponding flags to ocamldoc is enough :

     flag ["ocaml"; "doc"] (S[A"-short-functors"; A"-sort"; A"-m"; A"A"]);

The "-m A" arguments are part of the solution. They are not enough though, as ocamlbuild only passes the .mli to ocamldoc if a .mli exists.
