Hey brad, i think your assessment of the introspector it perfect,
we look at the internal representation, you are doing more
interpretation. The introspector is concerned with getting all this
data out of the respective program (gcc, bison, make, bash, and other
free tools), not exactly what the data is : of course this is
important, be we are just trying to provide a free and open interface
into the gcc.

The class model of the gcc nodes we are building is tested by new input
data from the gcc, then we use that to train the model to find out if
we are missing types and fields.
You might want to take a look at the new cvs version of the gcc
introspector. We support function body dumping, and currently are
testing the new rdf/rdfland interface. 

RDF/Redland uses swig to provide perl,java,tcl and ruby interfaces and
allows for berkley db storage. Later is will support sql storage, but
we have our own anyway for mysql and posgres.

We are looking for testers...
