I think we all understand what you set out to accomplish, but we're
just wondering about two things: 1) what kind of XML output do you
need and 2) can it be automated so that it can be easily maintained?
In our case, we use Doxygen to generate the HTML documentation based
on the comments in our code. Doxygen (http://www.doxygen.org) is an
open source tool that works very much like Javadoc or whatever
solution is available for C#, and it also supports several different
output backends. If you have the time, you could have a look and see
whether Doxygen has an XML backend and if the output that it generates
can be adaped to suit your needs.
