As always, I start looking for projects we can steal from:

* http://jakarta.apache.org/alexandria/ has JXR which does some Java
syntax analysis
(http://www.peerfear.org/alexandria/content/html/jxr/org/apache/cocoon/EngineWrapper.html),
it is also being packaged inside Maven
(http://jakarta.apache.org/turbine/maven/xref/index.html) - dunnow if it
has an XML back-end

* http://chaperon.sourceforge.net/overview.html if we can get hold from
a Java syntax definition file
(http://java.sun.com/docs/books/jls/first_edition/html/19.doc.html), 
already packaged as a Cocoon generator.
