 * This table describes the use of segments as EXPRESSION types.
 *	X_seg	X_add_symbol  X_subtract_symbol	X_add_number
 * SEG_NONE						no (legal) expression
 * SEG_BIG					*	> 32 bits const.
 * SEG_ABSOLUTE				     	0
 * SEG_SECT		*		     	0
 * SEG_UNKNOWN		*			0
 * SEG_DIFFSECT		0		*	0
 * The blank fields MUST be 0, and are nugatory.
 * The '0' fields MAY be 0. The '*' fields MAY NOT be 0.
 * SEG_BIG: A floating point number or an integer larger than 32 bits.
 *   For a floating point number:
 *	X_add_number is < 0
 * 	    The result is in the global variable generic_floating_point_number.
 *	    The value in X_add_number is -'c' where c is the character that
 *	    introduced the constant.  e.g. "0f6.9" will have  -'f' as a
 *	    X_add_number value.
 *   For an integer larger than 32 bits:
 *	X_add_number > 0
 *	    The result is in the global variable generic_bignum.
 *	    The value in X_add_number is a count of how many littlenums it
 *	    took to represent the bignum.

 * By popular demand, we define a struct to represent an expression.
 * This will no doubt mutate as expressions become baroque.
 * Currently, we support expressions like "foo-bar+42".
 * In other words we permit a (possibly undefined) minuend, a
 * (possibly undefined) subtrahend and an (absolute) augend.
 * RMS says this is so we can have 1-pass assembly for any compiler
 * emmissions, and a 'case' statement might emit 'undefined1 - undefined2'.
 * To simplify table-driven dispatch, we also have a "segment" for the
 * entire expression. That way we don't require complex reasoning about
 * whether particular components are defined; and we can change component
 * semantics without re-working all the dispatch tables in the assembler.
 * In other words the "type" of an expression is its segment.
