Is there plugin `show` based on `ppxlib.Deriving`

Hi all,

After reading GitHub pages and documents on ppxlib and ppx_deriving, I have understandings that:

  • ppxlib.Deriving is a new implementation for ppx_deriving
  • some ppx_<x> rewriters on based on ppxlib instead of ppx_deriving, like ppx_compare.

Is there plugin show based on ppxlib.Deriving? Should I just use show in ppx_deriving?

Shameless plug: I just implemented such a plugin, in particular to be able to derive show with OCaml 4.08.0 and ppxlib, while ppx_deriving is still being ported.
