Interesting work. It would be easier to just process a clang-query
string, but I guess you benefit from error messages in the python code
instead of in a string.
Do you have further plans for this library once it's clean and you have
a pip package etc done?
expose the various SourceLocations and SourceRanges and strings exposed
from AST node classes. That's probably something you will also need
