I've looked briefly at GCC_XML; I haven't seen Synopsis. In many ways I
would prefer one based on gcc, but I think GCC_XML is GPL'd, which may
clash with Boost's license policy. I'll look into both of these further.

Wow, the man himself is working on this! That is very good news. I'm
printing out his XTI papers as I type this.
