This line particularly inspires me:

The idea of automated instrumentation of code is an interesting one, and is
part of a more general problem that I am currently working on: C++
rewriting. I have started work on a C++ pretty-printer, which rips C++ code
into an XML format and builds the XML back up as either HTML or C++. We
could quite easily introduce new features such as profiling into the code.

The only caveat is that I am using my own parsing library YARD, as opposed
to Spirit. Stay tuned for progress.
