This is ongoing work on the ocaml-doc package, i will do it, but it has less
BTW, i have already applied your patch, but was going to add the camlp4 doc
aalso, as requested in a bug report. Once that is done i will upload the
package, but it am stopped by not knowing how to do this. Should i add a new
section begining with Format: HTML, or simply add the camlp4 to that first
I need to look into the documentation, but did not have the time to look into

If you are content with ocamlc and ocamlopt, just build depend on ocaml, if
you want to use ocamlc.opt and ocamlopt.opt if it is available, depend on
