There's still the issue of distinguishing between ST_CONSTANT and
ST_FXLC, checking object_id and type might cover that though.

I'm not sure storing additional info into the objects is the right
thing to do. Take a look at the D3DXFX_NOT_CLONEABLE flag from
Notice that GetPassDesc() doesn't return the shader data if the object
was created with the flag. What I've been thinking is that it simply
can't because the original shader data, stored in an object, were
freed after parsing.
While nothing forces us to do the same (except probably avoiding to
use more memory than strictly necessary) I think it's better not to
put additional stuff into the objects or generally assume that the
objects are still available after parsing. That means creating the
shaders and the strings at parse time or right after that and storing
any additional required information (e.g. preshader) in the parameter.

So, directly storing the referenced parameter is a good idea but I'd
prefer that pointer to be in d3dx_parameter.
