Hmm, I'm getting an error trying to use class_str_item (ocaml 3.09.2):

# #use "topfind";;
# #camlp4o;;
# #require "camlp4.extend";;
# open Pcaml;;
# let gen_method loc field =
    let obj = "obj" in
    <:class_str_item< method $lid:field$ = $lid:obj$#$lid:field$; >>;;
Unbound quotation: "class_str_item";;

(The rhs of the expression is temporary, just for testing)

Also, I similarly get similar error for "class_expr".
