[New-bugs-announce] [issue1810] Partial AST compile() patch

New submission from Thomas Lee:

This patch against HEAD provides the inverse operations to all the
ast2obj_* functions in Python/Python-ast.c: effectively, this allows
conversion to & from a PyObject representation of a Python AST.

Additionally, it updates the compile() builtin to allow it to compile
Python ASTs to bytecode.

The patch seems to work for most simple cases, but crashes out with a
segfault when trying to compile functions for some reason.
