[webkit-dev] Proposal and ideas for a new .in format

following several issues raised about the XML format, I have tried a
variation of the format Maciej proposed.
Here is an exemple:
# the first part contains the common parameters (may be empty)
# an empty line separate the 2nd part from the tags
# the first one is the tag, followed by a comma separated list of
attributes / values.
a upperCase=Anchor, noWrapperFactory=1
The common parameters would hold anything that is not related to
generation so that the script is aware of what it is generating.
These parameters for make_names.pl are (I included where I would put them):
- noWrapper (holding this change until the format settled)
- customWrapper (holding this change until the format settled)
=> would leave them in the .in files.
=> not sure if it belongs to the .in files or as a command line parameter.
=> would revert them as a command line parameters.
A last thought, do we want to switch all the .in files to this format
Any comments are welcome.
