Summary0003823: Camlp4: manual not up-to-date wrt. polymorphic variants

appendix A in the Camlp4-manual defines quotation ctyp, where the
macro syntax of syntax tree nodes for variant type definitions is
specified as follows:

  <:ctyp< [| $list:rfl$ |]

The preprocessor prints a warning that this is deprecated syntax.
After reading the Camlp4-sources, it seems that it has changed to:

  <:ctyp< [= $list:rfl$ ]

Could you please update the manual accordingly? - Thanks!

It would also be nice if the meaning of values in this list (and also
in others) could be documented in the manual.

Best regards,
Markus Mottl

This is about the old version of camlp4, which now lives separately from the core OCaml distribution, under the name of camlp5.
