I can show it to you but it's not creating a compilable set of sources. It  
has bugs and you need to go through the source and fix a lot.

http://pastebin.com/JSFzFwTt has the last version I have access to.  
Another guy here have a better version but he's celebrating easter  
somewhere so I haven't been able to get access to it today. :-p
