Bug description

I upload a module Myset that contains the Set module plus additional VERY useful functions :

val max_elt_lt : elt -> t -> elt
return the largest element lower than the first arg
val min_elt_gt : elt -> t -> elt
return the smallest element greater thant the first arg

The next two function are very useful when the order is only a preorder (when different elements x y are equals using :

val get_eq : elt -> t -> elt

return the element equals to the first arg if any (or raise Not_found)

val split_elt : elt -> t -> t * elt option * t

same as split but it returns the element equals to the first arg (if any)

PLEASE, add it to the Set module into the next release :)

Set.find_first/find_last in 4.05 can be used to implement easily all these function on the user side. I'm unsure about the actual need for split_elt. If you feel strongly about it, please open a new ticket (or, better, a PR) with more motivation.
