[ocaml-platform] ocp-index in user-setup

Dear all

I have recently switched to relying on user-setup for Emacs and I' m 
very pleased about it. However, I realized that it does not install 
ocp-index keymap as defined in 
Is it planned to update user-setup to deal with this?

More globally, the merlin and ocp-*  tools experience is really a huge 
improvement over the past (event though Tuareg was already very nice) 
but I think things may be misleading for newcomers or casual users:
- installing merlin and ocp-* tools directly through opam ends up with 
configuration instructions being displayed on the console by opam
- but these are different from the corresponding documentation for these 
packages (available on their respective web pages)
- and user-setup uses yet another Elisp code to setup the environment.

I guess it is quite tedious to do but getting all the standard setup 
made through user-setup would be great; both other ways could for 
instance be described explicitly on their respective web pages (and opam 
installation messages) as reserved for experts who don't want to rely on 

Thanks again for the good work,
