The introduction states "Baron is a Full Syntax Tree (FST) library for 
Python. By opposition to an AST which drops some syntax information in 
the process of its creation (like empty lines, comments, formatting), a 
FST keeps everything and guarantees the operation 
fst_to_code(code_to_fst(source_code)) == source_code.".

My fellow Pythonistas, ask not what our language can do for you, ask
what you can do for our language.
