What, you need a token for LF in ast? Why when you have location for all visible tokens.

when generating == replacing an AST - y I need the LF in the ast. The API is:

for = new for
for.block = foreach.block
for.block.Add (stuff)
replace (foreach, for)

That's the abstraction level in which refactorings should (and will be) built - therefore LF are needed (comments/pre processor directives are already in). I'll look what the GSoC student comes up with.

The whitespaces are not really required (but would be handy) - LF however are very useful in the ast. (like comments/directives)
