If this is the case, returning to an earlier issue:

It might not per se necessary that Emacs have access to the AST in
textual form. If GCC or part of GCC could be called as a library from
within Emacs to access the AST via an API, that might be sufficient.
I don't yet have an opinion on whether it would be more or less
convenient than having the AST in some other form, but it would
certainly permit Emacs to have arbitrary access to semantic
information about the program being edited.
