This module implements a visitor for the nodes.

node found. The visitor functions may return values which will be
forwarded by the `visit` method.
Per default the visitor functions for the nodes are ``'visit_'`` +
class name of the node. So a `TryFinally` node visit function would
be `visit_TryFinally`. This behavior can be changed by overriding
the `get_visitor` function. If no visitor function exists for a node
(return value `None`) the `generic_visit` visitor is used instead.

value. The return value may be the original node in which case no
replacement takes place.
