Theres a really kool tool that does that already ... from memory it is called 
JRefactory and is at sourceforge. It is also fairly good at source formatting 
and OK at refactoring. The only issue is that it is GPL however the author 
violates the GPL in a number of different ways so he may be convinced to LGPL 
or similar.
