This one is a bit different from the other two syntax extensions.
He's building a standalone preprocessor (/usr/bin/deriving) using an
undocumented feature of camlp4. I don't know if this is just his
personal preference or if there's some reason behind it.
Most camlp4 & camlp5 extensions are distributed as '*.cmo' files,
usually 'pa_*.cmo' where 'pa' stands for parser, and they get
dynamically loaded into the rest of camlp4 at runtime.
Well, all of the new camlp4 is undocumented, just this one even less.
