Your attempt is not OK.
For it to be, the proplist() type should be exported from the proplists
module; i.e. added in the export_type declaration of that module. So, if
your patch is to be accepted and included in OTP, minimally this needs
to be fixed.
I thought that since property() is an exported type from the proplists
module, there is no need to define proplist() since its definition would
be simple. But I think I was wrong: Your patch definitely shows that the
current situation with various different "definitions" of proplist() is
Thanks for noticing this.
