I believe multiple CamlP4 parsers can be specified on the command line and
are used in the order given.  But there are a few (relatively trivial)
syntax extensions people are commonly asking for (try ... finally is
probably the most common), so I was suggesting that we group the most
requested ones into a single camlp4 rather than users having to keep up with
and constantly specify multiple camlp4s.
