Yes, at least the most basic AST nodes. Converting the internal AST 
(defined in the compiler) to the external AST (defined in druntime) is 
the easy part. It's more difficult to do the conversion the other 
direction. It's a matter of knowing how to construct the internal AST 
node to make behave the same way as if you had written the corresponding 
source code.
