I've had a brief look, and it looks quite
interesting, but I have a question:

(1) How does it handle licencing issues?

(2) Another comment:
(** This function returns the content of a file in the form of one
   @cgname Files.input_file_as_string 
   @version 1.0
val input_file_as_string : string -> string

This is too heavy for regular use. 
How about a quick defaulted form:
(**@cgscan:File @version 1.0 *)
(*Near the top of the .mli file, enable scanning,
default to putting things in the File repository module *)
(**@* This function ....*)
(* ^^ says to export as named using default module and version *)

This means once you have set up the files for scanning,
you can add documented elements with two keystrokes.
You can still use the heavy form of course.
