Thanks!-) I've updated the code a bit, to traverse Bags and NameSets
abstractly (via toList/fromList), to extract common functionality into a
separate module Utils, and to organize the avoidance of potholes in the
Ast types based on stages (one surprise: HsBind.lhs promises that
placeHolderNames are used "prior to the renamer", but it appears that
the type checker introduces them as well - is that intended?).
Currently, the only things in Utils are a Data-based show (showData)
and query (everythingStaged), which augment the usual generic SYB
definitions with special cases for the Ghc Ast types. Does anything
similar to showData exist in the Ghc Api - what do you use for
debugging Ghc's Ast types at the moment?
Ultimately, some of this (Utils and Instances) ought to become part
of the Ghc Api. Meanwhile, I'd welcome feedback, on the issues
mentioned on the Wiki page or on use cases/bugs/improvements.
Btw, is there any way to delete attachments (I couldn't find one)? Could
someone with access please delete the two attachments marked "delete"?
