Proposal: ObjectiveC parser framework

First, excuse me for a little flood today.

What do you think about extracting objective-c parsing code from autogsdoc into 
a separate framework?

From http://wiki.gnustep.org/index.php/FrameworkWishList:


Framework that parses Objective-C source and generates object tree (class 
interfaces, implementations, categories, methods, instance variables, method 
descriptions, class descriptions, list of required headers,...). It can be 
lossy parser, that means a code generated from parsed sources does not have to 
be the same. This framework can be reused, besides other apps, by:

   * Gorm (importing interfaces)
   * autogsdoc (generating documentation)
   * CodeEditor (syntax highlighting, autocompletion and variable/method name 
suggestion, method implementation/variable/class category searching, inteligent 
   * Quite usable source code checkers (like one posted by andy ruder last time 
about possible memoryleak checking)
   * ProjectCenter (similar to ?CodeEditor).

This framework can be also used for some Smalltalk-like class editor/browser.

This is a nice example of reusable code. What do you think?
