Dear all,

I wanted to make you aware of an upcoming change to how sexp serialisers are 
exposed in a forthcoming version of Uri.

Rather than having them as base dependencies, we now have `uri.sexp` library 
that exposes a Uri_sexp module in which those serialisers are kept.

I think that sounds like a good change and welcome it whole-heartedly. :-)

Is there a reason you opted for a .sexp (ocamlfind package or whatever that is called) instead of an opam package `uri-sexp`?

I think for many of our libraries it's a little bit unfortunate that you have to deal with various json/sexp ppx converter stuff as build dependencies even if you never plan to use it.
