Note that our code is pretty darn regularized. We enforce style guidelines
very well, so it is actually pretty easy to parse stuff out. At one point,
I went and parsed headers for functions (see build/generator/extractor.py)
The code was amazingly simple.

Not saying it would be as easy, but the problem might not be horrible.
