That's really too bad. I was thinking of recognizing that type X was  
used for instance variables, for example, and generating code to  
register these appropriately with the Objective-C runtime.

I guess I could build a standalone tool to process OCaml class  
definitions and do this but I would rather have it as part of the  
regular compilation workflow.

So, in a word, there's no way to achieve what I'm looking for?  
Haskell people do this using Template Haskell and Camlp4 provides  
very similar capabilities.

	Thanks, Joel
