First hurdle is to find a comprehensive enough descriptions of each and 
every construct there is --including interfaces and generics.
This would cut down on guess work a lot. Is there a such a document 
anywhere --Google didn't help.

Second one is a tricky one: How do you handle code with multipaths?
I.e. code that includes in {$IFDEF}{$ELSE}{$ENDIF} blocks.
Do you ignore the bits that don't apply, or do you parse all alternative 
paths too in the name of perfection?

Finally, other than having the whole unit turned into a class structure, 
would the effort be worth it?

Wouldn't it be memory hog as well as slow as hell?
