I'm curious what utility this has, other than tidying up the Clang AST
interface part (because you know what templates exist inside the class).
I mean, you can't instantiate new functions; and if you're trying to
call an existing instance, you have to go find it anyway, in whichever
CU it happens to have been instantiated.

Feel free to start a new thread if this is straying too far from the
discussion that already strayed from the original topic. :-)
