Hello Alain,

It seems obvious but I want to be sure: can XStream generated code be
embedded in OCaml programs (native and bytecode)?

How XStream compares to OCamlDuce? From what you said, XStream can
only do XML->XML or XML->OCaml transformation, no OCaml->XML
transformation. So XStream cannot be used as a replacement to
OCamlDuce. Is it correct?

Best wishes,
