Due respect and all but this is really no good because it
makes things WORSE than they already are. How can someone
write a build script using camlp5 when it is called camlp4
on another system ..?

I think you should just fix the name to camlp5 or camlp4s, 
since you have the power to do that, and can't change INRIA's
decision to retain the name camlp4 for an incompatible version.

At least make the default camlp5 or camlp4s to support future
co-existence.
