Subject: Re: Upgrading sexplib-2.7.0 to camlp4 3.10

Thank you for your patience!

As per your suggestion, I converted this

     | <:ctyp< ( $list:tys$ ) >> -> tupl _loc ( aux tys)

into this

     | <:ctyp< ( $tup:tys$ ) >> -> tupl _loc ( aux  
(list_of_ctyp tys []))

where tupl is actually sexp_of_tuple below.

The ultimate goal is to convert ( t1 * ... * tN ) into a Lisp-style  
(t1, ..., tN).

My next issue is an error in sex_of_tuple:

This expression has type
   (Camlp4.PreCast.Syntax.Ast.patt * Camlp4.PreCast.Syntax.Ast.expr)  
but is here used with type Camlp4.PreCast.Syntax.Ast.binding list

This points at $list:bindings$. I attached mk_bindings at the end, in  
case it's of any use.

How should I rewrite $list:bindings$ here?

I don't understand why $list:bindings$ is assumed to be of type  
binding list when bindings itself is [(patt, expr)].

	Thanks, Joel
