Thank you, I just needed to do an `opam update`. But now the ppx-tools
and sexplibs packages fail to build, and I'm quite sure it is not due to
my changes in translcore.ml (I merely changed a condition to `true` so
that records are always updated fieldwise). For example, the build of
ppx_tools fails with:

    File "src/gen/common.ml", line 73, characters 24-34:
    Error: This expression has type Types.constructor_arguments
           but an expression was expected of type Types.type_expr list

Am I missing something or did my changes really break the package?

Best regards,
