As the @responsefile functionality is not widely used

The feature has now been removed.
This means that OCaml programs will not expand command-line arguments beginning with a "@" as responsefiles on Windows anymore, but instead pass them directly to the program (in Sys.argv as usual). All OCaml programs compiled under Windows are affected.
This is a change of behavior, but a community poll on the mailing-list indicated that basically no one was aware of this feature. Removing it will therefore protect users from a few surprises if they try, as the OCaml compiler authors, to use "@..." as a valid syntax for specific command-line parameters...
