It is for an assignment that has been given to me. The Professor wants it
done it for the Clang AST as opposed to the llvm IR.

I am not modifying the original source file, or expect to give the source
back to the user in some form. Just producing a better binary. I understand
Clang tries to retain as much of the original code specification in the AST
as possible, but I am basically ignoring that.
