Does this version do anything about SML programs that violate OCaml's
"uppercase identifier" convention? I recently tried something similar,
and while it did a competent job of parsing most of the syntax of SML,
it just reported errors for SML value bindings starting with an
uppercase letter. It would be nice if it just mapped such names to
"lowercase_XXX" or something so that the result could at least be
compiled. Or is that too "context sensitive" to be easy?

It exists but it is in the "unmaintained" section of camlp4:
