[cfe-dev] [libclang] Is there any method like get_children (python cindex) available for libclang or alternative to print the tree structure by the traversal method?

I have a branch of the Clang bindings that are nearly feature complete 
at https://github.com/indygreg/clang/tree/python_features. However, I 
/think/ that tree may be busted right now, so use at your own risk.

For the past ~6 months I've been slowly moving patches from my 
repository into the mainline. It has been a long process. Now that I 
have Manuel as a reliable reviewer, things could start moving faster. 
I've just been busy with other projects.

If there is a particular feature missing from the in-tree Python 
bindings, I probably have code for it somewhere. If anyone asks kindly, 
I can probably fast-track specific features to the main tree.
