I did.  But the docs just need to be revamped.  But I can't start on
that work until people tell me if they prefer FAQ-style (question
listing all steps and then a question covering each step) or
essay-style (bulleted list and then a definition/paragraph on each
step) for bug/patch guidelines.

Yeah, this is a total win for the AST compiler.  I would not have
wanted to attempt this with the old CST compiler.
