Are you saying that compilers are a crutch and we should get rid of
them? I don't think you intend that, but this is a completely
straightforward tool to build. It is needed only for backwards
compatibility -- to identify scripts that depend on the changed
behavior. There is no need for vi, emacs, or devstudio to understand
what's going on.
