AST restructuring plans

KL has prepared the first draft of the AST restructuring plan. It is still a bit confusing but it will be improved in near future together with a working example of a small AST. The first draft can be found here https://overture.svn.sourceforge.net/svnroot/overture/trunk/documentation/developmentDocs/RestructuringAst/restructuringAst.pdf

No other business.
