Subject: Behavior of camlp4o when used with -pp?
    Dear list,
 I'm currently faced with a weird behaviour (bug?) of camlp4.

Assuming the existence of a file, possibly empty.

camlp4o -no_comments

understands option "-no_comments" correctly and pretty-prints the
contents of, minus comments

However, when using camlp4o as a preprocessor,

ocamlc -i -pp "camlp4o -no_comments"
-no_comments: unknown or misused option
Use option -help for usage
File "", line 1, characters 0-1:
Error: Preprocessor error

Is this normal? Is there a workaround for this?
