<< Of course there is GODI, which is a wonderful tool, but writing and
maintaining a GODI package, even with godiva is still more work than
writing the syntax extension itself, once you know Camlp4. So in
practice what the authors do is place the file for download on their
personal web site with some documentation and that's it. >>

For those who know GODI as well as Camlp4, it shouldn't take more time
to write and maintain the GODI package than to write the extension
itself. Anyway...  did you consider writing either:

- a custom GODI package builder (from extensions);
- or a godi-p4ck package, which contains all the extensions in your
database.

GODI doesn't only gives automatic installation and updates, but also
package dependencies.
