This looks really good, thanks for getting it online. I was trying to 
track down the components and get my head around how it all works.

Is there anyway to generate the Library Descriptors onthefly / via code 
only ? I can see the upstream-tracker / ABI compliance testing script 
being a fantastic addition to the post-build testing that we do, but it 
would need to be completely automated. Getting Version, Libs and Headers 
info should be straightforward, but the abi sanity testing snippets in 
the xml looks  hard to autogenerate. Or I am just missing something.

Given that you have most likely already spent sometime on this issue, 
would you have any comments about this ?
