What do you think of the current idea to create a codemodel that has the AST 
as the underlying store?  I'm not sure how it'll work without a binder, but 
that is what Jakob is working on.

I'm currently making progress with serializing the AST's produced from 
kdevelop-pg.  If we indeed add DUContext and type information to the AST I'll 
probably want to persist this too.  Will have to persist after this other 
visitor pass has finished I guess.

Also, what are the chances we can integrate your DUChain stuff into 
kdevelop-pg so the other languages can have benefit?
