Apart from being more sensitive to changes in erl_syntax,
the actual internal representation is a bit difficult to
work with directly. I suggest that you use the functions
that I mentioned to map a tree to a simple Canonical Form:
something like {NodeType, [Attributes], [SubTrees]}. This
translation would make your problems with handling the old
erl_parse representation simply go away, and you are still
free to add your annotations etc. Then send this canonical
form as a term to the Java side.
