Project:Batteries : Revised Standard Library

We have just released an early preview of Batteries Included. This release is essentially a demonstration of the planned organization for the project.

The objective of Batteries Included is threefold:
* define a standard set of libraries which may be expected on every compliant installation of OCaml
* organize these libraries into a hierarchy of modules, with one source of documentation
* provide a consistent API for these otherwise independent libraries.

With these releases, we deal with
* the Base library (i.e. the library available with Inria's OCaml distribution)
* Extlib
* OCamlDoc
* Findlib
* Godi-script.

Uniformisation is barely started: there are still channels vs. inputs/ouputs, streams vs. enumerations, etc. Work is underway towards this goal and some of it is currently waiting for a green-light from ExtLib.
