Summary0007693: ocamldoc: loses parameter descriptions without even warning
DescriptionIt seems that `@param id` only works for named arguments, this is not mentioned in the manual afaics. It means when function has unnamed arguments then @param declarations are just ignored, also if named parameter doesn't match @param name the latter is ignored too. I would expect at least a warning when @param is ignored and I would better suggest to never drop user-supplied documentation even if it seems wrong to ocamldoc.
Steps To Reproduce$ cat

(** @param x argument to increment*)
let unnamed x = x + 1

(** @param x argument to increment *)
let named ~x = x + 1

(** @param x argument to increment *)
let misnamed ~y = y + 1

module type X = sig

(** [f1 x]
  @param x argument to increment
  @return result
val f1 : int -> int

(** [f2 ~x]
  @param x argument to increment
  @return result
val f2 : x:int -> int

(** [f3 ~x]
  @param x argument to increment
  @return result
val f3 : y:int -> int
