Bug description

Section 7.18 of the ocaml 4.00 documentation lists an extension to type constructor syntax:

constr-decl ::= ... | constr-name : typexpr { * typexpr } -> typexpr

This implies that an arrow must appear, but the arrow is optional. I can also declare

type _ t = Foo : unit t;;

Damien has been obsessively fixing documentations glitches recently, he may be interested by this one.

Well spotted. This is already fixed in the trunk version of the manual.
