an option to not inline the accessors in the header file would also be needed 
to protect against changes to the generated code from messing up source 

versioning of <entry>s so you can keep track of when something was added would 
also be nice. the rest could be up to the developer to ensure they don't 
remove / rename items to create a BIC interface.
