OK; I hoped to find a solution without the global-switching-var hacks;
something that is built in in ocamlyacc.

Maybe formy purposes then it's better to write my own
parser and call ocamllex-generated functions directly.

OK; then I better hackmy own parser.
As the fileformat is not too hard,
this should be the better way.
