logilab-astng \- Python Abstract Syntax Tree New Generation
.I logilab-astng
The aim of this module is to provide a common base representation of 
python source code for projects such as pychecker, pyreverse, pylint.

It is governed by pylint's needs.  It extends class defined in the 
compiler.ast [1] module with some additional methods and attributes. 
Instance attributes are added by a builder object, which can either 
generate extended ast by visiting an existant ast tree or by inspecting 
living object. Methods are added by monkey patching ast classes.

Main modules are:

* nodes and scoped_nodes for more information about methods 
and attributes added to different node classes

* the manager contains a high level object to get astng trees 
from source files and living objects. It maintains a cache of 
previously constructed tree for quick access

* builder contains the class responsible to build astng trees
