I didn't think so because we can compress the XML files on the fly like 
SO or KOffice and you have only the names from the namespaces, 
methods... to store not the whole source code. The memory is also not a 
problem we can parse the dom tree and store the result in own structs so 
all the same a own parser or doxygen with XML output.


The truth is out there! Does anyone know the URL? (Quelle unbekannt)
