 - need to fix display of type parameters for inherited classes/class types
 - need to add an environment while generating to print correct links:
   file foo.mli:
     type u
     module type M = sig type u end
     module N : sig include M val f: u -> unit end
   Here, in html for example, f in displayed being of type Foo.u instead of Foo.M.u
 - latex: types variant polymorphes depassent de la page quand ils sont trop longs
 - utilisation nouvelles infos de Xavier: "debut de rec", etc.
 - xml generator

Release > 3.11.0:
- option -g also for native code version (loading custom generators)

Release 3.09.3:
- mod: PR#4017 new option -short-functors to use a short form to display
  functors in html generator
- fix: PR#4016 (using modtype constraint to filter module elements displayed in doc)
- fix: PR#4066 (missing crossref in text from intro files)
- fix: PR#4007 (error in merging of top dependencies of modules)
- fix: PR#3981 (-dot-colors has no effect)
- mod: name resolution in cross-referencing: {!name} if name is not
  found, then it is searched in the parent module/class, and in the parent
  of the parent, and so on until it is found.

Release 3.09.1:
 - fix: remove .TP for generated man pages, use .sp instead
   (.TP caused a lot of odd margins)
 - fix: html generator now output DOCTYPE and character encoding information.
 - add: m_text_only field in Module.t_module, to separate real modules
   from text files handled as modules.
 - fix: display only text for "text modules"
 - extensible {foo } syntax
 - user can give .txt files on the command line, containing ocamldoc formatted
   text, to be able to include bigger texts out of source files
 - -o option is now used by the html generator to indicate the prefix
   of generated index files (to avoid conflict when a Index module exists
   on case-insensitive file systems).

 - fix: the generated ocamldoc.sty is more robust for paragraphs in
     ocamldocdescription environment
 - fix: when generating separated files in latex, generate them in
     the same directory than the main file, (the one specified by -o)

     name rather than their fully qualified name

     Odoc_mist.sting_of_module_type, to avoid too much blanks
 - new module odoc_print, will work when Format.pp_print_flush is fixed
 - odoc_html: use buffers instead of string concatenation
 - odoc_man: use buffers instead of string concatenation
 - use hash tables modified on the fly to resolve
    (module | module type | exception) name aliases
 - odoc_html: replace some calls to Str. by specific functions on strings
 - use a Map to associate a complete name to
    the known elements with this name, instead of searching each time

    for cross-referencing (Odoc_cross.associate)
 - fix: Odoc_name.cut printed a '(' instead of a '.'
 - add: new option -customdir
 - add: new option -i (to add a path to the directory where
     to look for custom generators)

 - add: m_code_intf and m_code fields for modules, fit when the
   Odoc_args.keep_code option is set, and fit for all modules, not
   only toplevel ones
 - fix: bug preventing to get the code in a .mli
