Hi Yitzhak,

your code looks very interesting.

It might be a good fit for uitlity that clang-refactor can use, too.
(not sure about the state of clang-refactor though)
I would be interested how your framework integrates into clang-tidy, do
you have a reference check that you ported to your approach (i have seen
some references to clang-tidy code)?

P.S. It might be a good idea to make your diff a full revision, as right
now the discussion feature can not be used.

Best, Jonas
