The function Pparse.file is the one that makes the compiler accepts
either source code or marshaled ASTs. By looking at its implementation
and its call sites, you'll discover that the binary format is the
concatenation of a magic string Config.ast_impl_magic_number (resp.
Config.ast_intf_magic_number) and the marshaled version of a
Parsetree.structure (resp. a Parsetree.signature).
