It should be noted that this would change the current behavior (-I 
directory are scanned in the order they are provided, with a first-match 
policy).  We probably don't care too much because it is unlikely that 
the same unit will be present in several directories.

I'm more concerned with the fact that order matters even if there is no 
conflict, which, again is a departure from today's situation.  ocamlfind 
will need to pass -I flags in the correct order.  Wouldn't it be better 
to resolve aliases in the same way as references in the source code 
(i.e. using all the -I flags)?
