Are you sure? If this compiles only Caml code, nobody will use it for 
serious projects. But I was thinking of loadable modules like in emacs 
instead of a rigid and limited set of predefined rules.
If we think of make as a preprocessor for shell-scripts, then we can 
create a preprocessor for OCaml that will do the same but will benefit 
from many built-in properties that sh doesn't have and that (GNU) make 
hardly provides.
