I also was happy to use OCamlMakefile for my projects. It works, and why 
would I need something more complicated?
Well, after reading your email, I was motivated to try dune, and... 
wow... I was shocked.
In a few minutes I was able to compile my most complicated project, with 
near to zero information in the dune file!
This is actually easier than OcamlMakefile.

thanks for the incentive to switch ;)
