I find that the Coccinelle technology is a promising approach. It works 
for patches on C programming language files.

I assume that you imagine a different data structure for the 
specification of consistent source code transformations across 
translation units.

It is a pity. - I hope that some results from knowledge areas like 
Smalltalk, Java or OCaml can be better reused in the near future.
Would you like to avoid to reinvent a "coding wheel"?
