LOL, I didn't make this AST - microsoft did. I'm just making it less burdensome to use.

The AST is used by .NET language providers such that when you make a .NET language, you also provide a renderer that can turn code dom code into code for that language.

Since all the base class libraries are the same across languages, that makes the code work in any language.

This is useful when creating things like "end user" dev tools that work for any .NET language the developer chooses, or even backend stuff on large projects where people may be working in more than one language.

I use it also because static linking isn't readily available in .NET without hacking the life out of it, so if i have something where i can create code-dom ready source then that stuff can be included at the source level, even in VB projects and such.
When I was growin' up, I was the smartest kid I knew. Maybe that was just because I didn't know that many kids. All I know is now I feel the opposite.
