XML for VHDL documention and structural description of Hardware SoC

Hi VHDL GNU men,

Amontec is interested to build an auto-documentation of our VHDL
libraries, cell-by-cell.

The documentation will stay basic, like :
general description
port description
generic description
implementation description
license description
note description

The goal is to do a interface documentation for the end-user.

Now, we know the power of XML for this kind of documentation.
The advantage of XML is the structural view like VHDL. Having a VHDL
library documented in a XML format, we will be able to describe the
hardware of a SoC very quickly, and to ask XML to re-generate a VHDL
concatenated file of our XML description ... oopps)

The start-point will becomes the end-point (VHDL bottom-up design to XML
up-down design)

I will be interested if some VHDL men have a VHDL to XML parser,
thinking documentation only.

Or is that better to do a parser to correct my VHDL libraries inserting
directly the XML format in the vhdl comment.

Let me know if some are interested to work with Amontec on this JOB.
