If you want to try Adam's tool and give him feedback, that would be great.
I'm leaving town on Friday and it's not certain whether I will be able to
try it myself, as I'm very far behind on many tasks right now.  I know that
a user here is very eager to use Adam's plugin, but I don't want to ask him
to try it until someone in our group has.


PS:  Igor Peshansky of IBM is working on a JSR308-conforming parser for
eclipsec (and Adam's work is egging it on!).  Until then, as Adam noted,
Eclipse will work best with the comment-style annotations.
