I have a question about the behavior of camlp4orf (and family) in  
3.11.0. Now with the availability of native dynlink, it seems like  
camlp4orf and camlp4orf.opt can load external modules inside the core.  
If one looks at their respective help:

<file>.(cmo|cma) Load this module inside the Camlp4 core
<file>.cmx       Load this module inside the Camlp4 core

This is a feature I've been looking for to speedup compilation times.  
However, if I try the native version, here is what I get:

samson:src andres$ camlp4orf.opt poyExtension.cmx
Error: don't know what to do with poyExtension.cmx
Use option -help for usage

Is the usage different for the camlp4*.opt preprocessors?
