Using XML-transformation for AST manipulation isn't my first choice
either - yet efficiency concerns aren't really the point here - after
all we're talking about generating code, which would be pretty useless
if the work was to be done by the transformation instead of that very
code generated ...
So the question is: do XML/XSL give an advantage here? As I said - I
personally don't think so, IMHO a standard reducer using a decent
visitor is easy enough and works well. But your (or better Fredrik's) MMV.
