; Preprocessor for Forest Rewriter
; Chris Pressey, sometime late January 2006
; This work is in the public domain.  See the file UNLICENSE for more
; information.

; The goal here is to allow the compound-rules to be specified in a nicer,
; more flexible syntax, and preprocess them so that they are in a form that
; this engine can handle (eventually they should be compiled to super-efficient
; sequential code that "knows" which rewrites are likely immediately after
; other rewrites occur; but, first things first.)
; The most important part of this is *sorting* the rules by *specificity*
; so that the most specific rules are applied first.
; Ideally this would solve all our problems.  But it might not, so we probably
; want a stable sorting algorithm that preserves the relative order specified
; by the programmer.
; Another reason to do this is to do type checking and other static analysis.
; e.g. a variable which appears on some RHS of a compound-rule, must also
; appear on some LHS of that compound-rule.

; The terms and compound-rules, before preprocessing, look like this:
; (
;   (                                            ; list of named terms
;     (ast: ())                                  ; a named terms
;     (stab: ())
;     (out: ())
;   )
;   (                                            ; list of compound-rules
;     ((ast: foo => bar) (stab: bee => hive))    ; a compound-rule
;   )
; )
