Yes that is when you are creating a node for the first time. not based
on another node? That is the meaning of _create right?

But for the cases where you *DO* clone, does it not make sense to
create an extra set of functions for the job?

If you are creating a class.

yes, that is fine. I will have to look into the newest code and try an
find some areas to start with. 
Well, I will start trying to find some nodes that dont have line
numbers. I will tell you what I find and try and fix some.

That is great news. I am interested in trying to see if some of the
crashes that I found still crash the compiler. Also doing some coverage
testing would still be interesting.
