I might mention that the lisp output would be significantly easier
to parse and maintain. Language manipulation and transformation is
the easiest thing to do in lisp (due to the fact that data and
program have the same syntax). Lisp's READ function is straightforward.
You could cover the reader with a complete Aldor package that could
extract any known piece of information on request (e.g. fetchSignatures).
Thus creating a complete reflection API only involves knowing the 
structure of the data in the output file.
