I have a patch that eliminates dyn_cast<> and replaces all instances
The downside is that since dyn_cast<> explicitly ignores inheritance in
the case of VIA -> TRACK and ZONE -> TRACK, I had to create a new TRACE
class and make TRACK abstract, which means that Python scripts will need
to be adjusted, or we need a compatibility layer here.
I'm planning to submit this to the 6.0 branch once it opens.
