This seems _fairly_ esoteric to me. Why do you need it?
I can think of two uses for lnotab information: printing source lines
and locating source lines on the filesystem. For both, I think I'd
rather see some kind of defined protocol (methods on the code object,
maybe?) rather than inventing some kind of insane
too-general-for-the-common-case data structure.
42. You can measure a programmer's perspective by noting his
attitude on the continuing vitality of FORTRAN.
