+ <longdescription lang="en">The aim of this module is to provide a common base representation of
+ python source code for projects such as pychecker, pyreverse,
+ pylint... Well, actually the development of this library is
+ essentially governed by pylint's needs.
+ It provides a compatible representation which comes from the _ast
+ module. It rebuilds the tree generated by the builtin _ast module by
+ recursively walking down the AST and building an extended ast (let's
+ call it astng ;). The new node classes have additional methods and
+ attributes for different usages. They include some support for static
+ inference and local name scopes. Furthermore, astng builds partial
+ trees by inspecting living objects.</longdescription>
