Whitespace and comments are a clear bugfix: selecting some
comments/space near a statement doesn't mean you're selecting the
surrounding block.

Semicolons are less obvious, but for similar reasons: these tokens
aren't actually claimed by any AST node (usually), so an AST-based model
like SelectionTree shouldn't take them into account.

Callers may still sometimes care about semis of course:

- when the selection is an expr with a non-expr parent, selection of the semicolon indicates intent to select the statement.
- when a statement with a trailing semi is selected, we need to know its range to ensure it can be removed.

SelectionTree may or may not play a role here, but these are separate questions
from its core function of describing which AST nodes were selected.

The mechanism here is the TokenBuffer from syntax-trees. We use it in a
fairly low-level way (just to get boundaries of raw spelled tokens). The
actual mapping of AST nodes to coordinates continues to use the (fairly
mature) SourceLocation based logic. TokenBuffer/Syntax trees
don't currently offer an alternative to getFileRange(), I think.
