Come on, Skaller. You know as well as everyone that adding a tool that  
is not mature enough to the standard distribution is a bad idea.
Mehnir is clearly the "official" candidate for replacement of  
CamlYacc, without yet being mandatory. This gives you the time to  
port, criticize and ask for improvements. Look the mess that happened  
with CamlP4 which didn't follow this pattern.

So instead of being complaining because Mehnir is not yet in the  
standard distribution, you should be porting your CamlYacc code to  
ensure that when the tools are swapped, Menhir will make your code  
simpler, faster and cleaner.
