Bug#833362: ITP: ppx-driver -- feature-full driver for OCaml AST transformers

Package: wnpp
Severity: wishlist
Owner: "Stéphane Glondu" <glondu@debian.org>

* Package name    : ppx-driver
  Version         : 113.33.03
  Upstream Author : Jane Street Group LLC
* URL             : https://github.com/janestreet/ppx_driver
* License         : Apache-2.0
  Programming Lang: OCaml
  Description     : feature-full driver for OCaml AST transformers

 A driver is an executable created from a set of OCaml AST
 transformers linked together with a command line frontend.
 The aim is to provide a tool that can be used to:
  * easily view the pre-processed version of a file, no need to
    construct a complex command line: `ppx file.ml` will do
  * use a single executable to run several transformations: no need to
    fork many times just for pre-processing
  * improved errors for misspelled/misplaced attributes and extension

This package is a new dependency of ocaml-ipaddr.
