// Any VHDL syntax element. Each element can also contain a comment.
// Memory management is handled specially for vhdl_element subclasses:
// The vast majority of vhdl_elements will be created during code generation
// and persist until after they have been printed, at which point *all*
// vhdl_element objects should be destroyed. To support this all allocations
// of vhdl_element subclasses call a special operator new which records
// the pointer allocated so we can ensure that it is disposed of when
// the code generator completes -- by free_all_objects.
// The two big advantages of this are that we don't have to worry about
// memory leaks of vhdl_element objects, and we can freely share pointers
// between different parts of the AST.
