eeehmmm... ehmehmehm... i'd love to see that in action, i can sort-of
subconsciously / intuitively see it would work but i don't know how :)

think it through: if we publish this as a generic pypi package
(and assume that the users are intelligent), will they freak out
at needing to inherit everything from "class Node" in their

(remember i am considering replacing nmigen's Visitor-pattern with
 this code)

yyeah, i think we start to see why pyomo has a list of "builtin types",
and also why they have "register this class type with the walker system"


native_types is used back in the visitor code (in their equivalent
of the tree-walk function) to decide what to yield to the Visitor:


        elif type(child) in native_types:
            return False, child

actually... "type(child) in native_types" might be the right thing to do, here,

class Dataclass(metaclass=DataclassMeta):
    def walk(clsself, match=None):

        field = (field_type if isinstance(clsself, type) else field_value)
        yield from filter(match, map(field, _dataclasses.fields(clsself)))


        field = (field_value if type(child) in native_types else
                 (field_type if isinstance(clsself, type) else
        yield from filter(match, map(field, _dataclasses.fields(clsself)))

would that work? i'm running on instinct here.
