Is such a thing even possible?  I thought ocamllex/ocamlyacc produced
parsers for LALR(1) languages while camlp4 produced parsers for LL(k)
languages.  These two sets do not bear a subset relation in either
direction, so i would think it impossible to completely implement either
tool in terms of the other.  Have i misunderstood something?

cheers,
William
