Hi Danill - and sorry for the late answer.

Yes, Lascar only use camlp4 for stream expressions (using the Genlex to parse small expressions).
I’ve checked, and i cant find any reference to camlp4 in the latest version of Rfsm; i can’t remember why i put it the package dependency list (because it itself depends on Lascar ?).
You’re much welcome to work on path. 

Jocelyn
