I'm not familiar with bison... Any help is welcome :-)
The chunk of code between the '{' and '}' is just C++ (mostly, except for the
$ markers of course). Looking at this, the line

TypeSpec t (simple, t.is_closure());

doesn't make any sense to me, since it appears to use t before it's constructed.
(Why does this even compile elsewhere? Maybe there's another variable t in the

To me it seems this should be

TypeSpec t (simple, false);

since the metadata can never be a closure. I'm not an expert though (not by
any means!); does this sound right guys?
