[Compiler-sig] ast branch status

I've been working on the AST branch. I *think* it's in better shape
than before I started, but YMMV. :-)
I don't get any crashes now. When I do a make, setup.py "executes,"
but it doesn't do anything. I have two outstanding changes to make
it run through to completion with exceptions:
1) Remove first line in getopt.py (need to impl file encoding/pep 263)
2) Comment out BLDSHARED line Lib/distutils/sysconfig.py (363)
I added a section at the top of Python/newcompile.c for the known bugs.
There are a few memory leaks now when running setup.py. But I think
there's a lot of potential leaks. The lifetime of memory isn't
clear to me. But maybe it's just my confusion.
Since setup.py doesn't work, I can't run any tests right now. I'll
probably build the extensions by hand and see if I can get a bunch
of tests to work. It's probably easier to debug segfaults than
just strange behaviour (like setup doing nothing). :-(
Any help or ideas for how to proceed would be great.
