In the past, we've just used keywords; as far as I recall, the only
cases we've had to deal with so far are sizeof, alignof, and typeof.
You're pretty much forced to use keywords, actually, because you'll
need a special action to pass the type names to Sema. If you want to
avoid adding 15 Actions, you can probably make a single ActOnTypeTrait
which takes an enum.
