Okay, what will the basic abstractions be?
You mention duchain. Is that programming language independent?
Will there be a CodeModel that supports basic, programming language
independent abstractions such as:
- namespace (Pascal unit, Ada/Java package, CORBA IDL module)
- class
- method
- enum (please  allow for stronger typing than the past CodeModel did)
- typedef (Ada has powerful distinction, subtypes/derived types)
- The above describe static structure. Will the CodeModel encompass
  execution (program flow)?

Hmm.. high time I start looking at the code in trunk...
