There is an Ocaml module in SWIG which may be useful to you.
It sounds like you basically only need to call a single
Ocaml parser function from Python to do the parsing which
should be trivial.

More difficult will be interpreting the parser output:
that will be some Ocaml data structure like a parse tree
you'll need to walk somehow from Python.

On way to do that might be to get the Ocaml parse to
build a parse tree made out of PyObjects.
