Yes, Sergey Chaban has worked on such a tool, and maybe at some point we
should integrate this into the distribution.  You can find his work


Also, notice that he has implemented a Metadata library in C#, which is
much nicer than any C or COM bindings that exist out there, so this is
something that we should also encourage people to use.
