Summary0007623: ocamldoc replaces type variables with meaningless identifiers
DescriptionIt would be good if ocamldoc preserved type variables so that we could have the following in the documentation:

val get : ('key, 'value) Hashtbl.t -> 'key -> 'value option

As it stands, the signature above gets converted into:

val get : ('a, 'b) Hashtbl.t -> 'a -> 'b option

What would it take to get this done?

I am unable to reproduce the problem (with a one-line mli file),
with versions 4.02.3 .. 4.05.0; is this declaration part of a
larger signature?
