Python AST manipulator

Description

astor is designed to allow easy manipulation of Python source via the AST.

There are some other similar libraries, but astor focuses on the following areas:

 - Round-trip back to Python via Armin Ronacher's codegen.py module:
   - Modified AST doesn't need linenumbers, ctx, etc. or otherwise be directly
     compileable

 - Dump pretty-printing of AST
   - Harder to read than round-tripped code, but more accurate to figure out
     what is going on.
   - Easier to read than dump from built-in AST module

 - Non-recursive treewalk
   - Sometimes you want a recursive treewalk (and astor supports that, starting
     at any node on the tree), but sometimes you don't need to do that. astor
     doesn't require you to explicitly visit sub-nodes unless you want to:
   - You can add code that executes before a node's children are visited,
     and/or
   - You can add code that executes after a node's children are visited, and/or
   - You can add code that executes and keeps the node's children from being
     visited (and optionally visit them yourself via a recursive call)
   - Write functions to access the tree based on object names and/or attribute
     names
   - Enjoy easy access to parent node(s) for tree rewriting

This package provides Python 2 module bindings only.
