XSBuilder::ParseSource has been in works since its last release. We are 
planning on using it to generate the initial docs for mod_perl 2.0, please 
refer to the recent posts at the docs-dev modperl list:

Our plan is to automatically import the C header files docs, autogenerate pods 
and then move onto manual maintenence mode.

But why do you need this automatic handling at all? What's wrong with writing 
POD in first place? The C and Perl apis have little overlap if at all, no?
