There is an SML syntax provided by Camlp4, it is incomplete, but I
managed to translate a rather big program from SML to OCaml with it.

You can take the source of that syntax and make your changes
to create your own syntax, but I am afraid that its code is very bad

of some years ago which were very unreadable. I should rewrite
one day...

Another solution is to take the "normal" syntax or the "revised"
syntax as start. I have been working these days on a "Scheme"
syntax, (written in Scheme syntax and bootstrapped by
a revised syntax version
