Summary0005601: Shouldn't warn about unused constructors when there is an equation
DescriptionThe following code causes two warnings:

# module M = struct type t = A end;;
module M : sig type t = A end
# module G : sig end = struct type d = M.t = A end;;
Warning 34: unused type d.
Warning 37: unused constructor A.

Warning 34 is correct since d is defined but never used.
However warning 37 is wrong, since A comes from M.t, and one can build values using M.t.

I looked at the code, but couldn't determine how to fix that.

Thanks. Fixed in trunk (12397) and 4.00 (12398).

The current strategy for detecting unused constructors is rather constraining. Ideally, one should merge "usage markers" when a constructor is re-exported so to consider all the declarations for the same constructor as a single one. This can be done later.
