Variable documentation

const TempVarSymbol* slang::ast::TempVarSymbol::nextTemp

For efficiency purposes, each temp var symbol can form a linked list so that when creating nested expressions we don't need to manage memory separately for list nodes. This member is otherwise not useful to other consumers.
