Why would you need a tool like that for such a format?

Exactly the same way moc already parses header files now? My idea was to 
explore if it were possible to build on what moc already can do. You 
might have noticed that this idea looks exactly like how you create 
Q_PROPERTY declarations. I think they should basically _be_ Q_PROPERTY 
declarations, though the options would be extended with keywords such as 

Note that I would really like it if it were possible at all to not only 
generate .cpp, but also generate a bit of .h that gets included into the 
class declaration in some way, so that there would be real functions to 
call for all settings. That's what I really miss with the Q_PROPERTY 
using the MEMBER keyword.
