Not sure if such a base class really makes sense. Since it would have to deal 
with different data-types in each case, it would have to be a template class, 
and it would be ugly.

At some point maybe we can find a way to store additional information into the 
code-model, but we don't want it to replace the duchain, the better option 
would be making the duchain faster.

A maybe better solution for you would be to create a separate repository where 
you only store the additional information that doesn't fit into the normal 
code-model, by mapping from IndexedDeclaration to that specific information 
(like duchain/defintiions.h and duchain/definitions.cpp).

Just out of interest, what exact new members did you require in the code-

Greetings, David
