Subject: [Caml-list] printers and readers

Is it possible to use Camlp4 (or anything else) to generate printers *and* 
readers for *all* types supported by O'Caml? [1] I guess what I'm looking for 
is a type-safe version of Lisp's "read", "print" and "write" that I won't 
have to write myself by hand for each class of types. Humanly-readable  ASCII 
text marshalling is another way to see it.

Ideally (i.e. with language support), I'd like to have a functorial interface 
for this: a module that generates printers and readers given a type.
