Subject: documentation on ocamlopt backend
I'm potentially interested in writing a new backend target for  
ocamlopt.  I looked around in the Ocaml distribution subdirectory  
"asmcomp" (which is where the target-specific portion of the backend  
appears to be implemented), but there is not very much documentation  
there.  In particular, I'm interested in generating assembly that  
will be piped through an assembler that is not "as."

Is this (readily) feasible?  Just curious.

Thanks in advance.
