New submission from Larry Hastings:

Twice recently I've wanted a function that transforms an AST node tree back into text:

* In the hacked-up Tools/clinic/clinic.py for issue #24001
* In the hacked-up Lib/inspect.py for issue #23967

Both times I did a half-assed job just to get the patch working, so we could decide whether or not we want to go this route.

It seems useful and reasonable to do a proper job and add this functionality to ast.
