Are you suggesting adding something like ASTContext::isPointeeTypeCharSize() and ASTContext::isIntegerTypePointerSize()?  Or maybe a single specialized function somewhere that does both checks like ASTContext::areOperandNullPointerArithmeticCompatible()?

I'm most concerned about the difference between "isa<llvm::ConstantPointerNull>(pointer)" and "PExp->IgnoreParenCasts()->isNullPointerConstant()"... they're different in important ways.

I was thinking something like "BinaryOperator::isNullPointerArithmeticExtension()"
