I have not used it myself, but have you had a look at the new Groovy
2.5 "abstract syntax tree search and replace"-feature
(http://groovy-lang.org/releasenotes/groovy-2.5.html & search
for "AST matching") ?

I'm trying to implement an AST transformation to replace
any `==` binary expression with a equals method call
invocation as suggested here
My understanding is that it's required to override each the
visitor for each node where a binary expression can appear ie.
if statement, while statement, assignment, for loop, method
That looks a bit overkill. I was wondering if there's a
better way to replace globally all `==` binary expressions
with `equals` method invocations.
