    I think it's actually a mistake to try to come up with the One True
    Representation for all programming languages; they're internals are
    wildly different.

Sure, but we manage to come up with common representations for expressions,
objects, and types!   Let's see the full documention of the semantics of
those nodes and then see if we can't massage them into something that's
just a bit more general.

    A COMPOUND_STMT has as its children a list of statements which are
    chained together.  So, in fact, this practice follows existing
    methodology in GCC.

I have no problem with that.
