Code mod utils?

Has there been any discussion around providing some form of tooling for doing code mods, similar to jscodeshift and friends in the JS world? This is of course a fairly advanced use case, but still, having a way of writing code mods would be very valuable.

As hard as it is to deal with PPX:es/the AST, I guess a code mod in ReScript could in theory be modelled as a PPX you run once and rewrite in place?

It’d be interesting to discuss this. As code bases and ReScript itself grows, I can imagine the need for something like this will increase. I know there’s comby and similar text-based tools, which are really great at what they do. But a simple to use, AST-based tool is another tool that’s useful to have in your tool belt, especially for larger code bases.
