Anonymous unions and structs apparently require C11, which I guess is not
something we want to require.

If I have to name the union and struct, a lot of the conciseness of this
refactor is lost. All accesses of filter data either have to be qualified with
something like filter_data->type_specific.tree.seen_at_depth. If we want to
avoid that messy construct, we are back to assigning an alias pointer of the
correct type as we are doing before this patch anyway.

It's possible there is a clean and concise way to do C-style OO that is better
than what is already here, but this seems to be not worth our time at this
point. For the time being, I'll just change this patch to simplify the API (so
everything is emcompassed in an opaque `struct filter *`) and keep the
implementation more or less as-is.

Thank you for taking a look.
