What do you mean by "hand-written parser in the first place"? Do you
mean the sources in camlp4/ocaml_src/* ? No, they are not hand-written:
they are pretty printed from the sources in camlp4/*. I never edit
them, I just do "make bootstrap_sources" to update them.

Could you reformulate your question? I don't understand. What is an
*RD* parser?
