Bug description

Numerous modules which are part of the compiler library appear in the manual library index at

It would help the readability of this index if

  • all modules had a short description
  • the short description of every module of the compiler-libs started with a "Compiler-libs:" or equivalent prefix.

Note that this short description of module is extracted from the first sentence of the first documentation comment in the module ".mli" file.
