My code is not clever enough to do caching yet, but it is so fast at
lexing and doing a light parse of the source code and imports that I
haven't bothered. (The implementation is multi-threaded and I've run
it through Callgrind a few times) The bottleneck is still loading its
output into TA.

I still have a few minor bugs in the various adeptsense functions that
I've overridden, so be careful when using the D module as a reference.

If you find any problems with the callStack() function from
cstyle.lua, let me know.
