I looked at the KDE source and got an idea how to grab the comments
without parsing. I'm already fiddling with the pre-processor output
using perl (from my last e-mail), so how about we get it to convert the
javadoc comments into C strings for gcc?

     * The same as the above constructor, but with a KGuiItem providing
     * the text and icon.
     * @param item The KGuiItem with the label and (optional) icon.
     void func(...);

    // we need to encode spaces, or else the -fdump parser dies
    void __SMOKE_COMMENT_123(const char *comment = "/**%0A"
    void func(...);

GCC dumps the value of default arguments, and I could save the default
argument to __SMOKE_COMMENT.XXX() functions and attach them to the next
function declared (in document order).

The only parsing required would be m,/\*\*.*?\*/, match.

Also, the XML output includes all the argument names. We could
implement named args!

$foo->method(-arg => "value");  # perl5
foo.method(:arg => "value");    # ruby
foo.method(arg:"value");        # python
$foo.method(:arg<value>);       $ perl6
foo at method ~arg:"value"         # ocaml

We just need to prod the trolls to provide names for all the arguments
we want to use. :)
