Let’s say I have a function with some optional arguments and some mandatory ones:
let f ?a ?b c = ...
And let’s say the
b argument should only be used inside this module. It would be nice to be able to just put
val f : ?a : 'a -> c -> 'b -> 'c
mli, to restrict the outside world from seeing the optional
b argument. It seems that this might be tricky to implement from the standpoint of separate compilation.
Right now the best workaround I can come up with is to make a separate function to export to the outside world which simply calls the internal one appropriately.
