> FWIW, two of the most common camlp4 parsers in the wild, stream parsers and
> bitstring, are solved in F# using view patterns. I suspect many other
> applications of camlp4 would be written in terms of view patterns. Moreover,
> it strikes me that consideration so far on things like F#-like attributes is
> an orthogonal issue so perhaps support for that and support for view
> patterns would do a much better job of displacing camlp4.
> I use view patterns to write parsers in F# but I would prefer a camlp4-like
> technology to write parsers in-line.
