hmm. prolog sounds not so bad. it is an declarative language.
we could define some clause scheme (provided by some lib/preload) which 
then is/are machine readable (for IDEs, etc). This one should be 
mappable from/to descriptive languages like XML. 

well, lets try some little examples:

We have an project "x11" which consists of several modules:

    --> module type: c-library
    --> provides C-binding (include files, C-Interfaces, ...)
    --> may be compiled as .so or .a
    --> imports libc

    --> module type: c-library
    --> provides C-Binding 
    --> imports Xcommon, libc
    --> module type: framework/group
    --> available target architectures: * (intel,sparc,...)
    --> available target platforms:     <all unix-like>

        --> module type: c-library
        --> provides C-binding (include files, C-Interfaces, ...)
        --> may be compiled as .so or .a
        --> imports Xcommon

        --> module type: binary executable
        --> imports Xserver-base
        --> framework-imports: <all framework-modules from parent)
        --> module type: framework-module 
        --> may be compiled as .so, .a or directly into fw-client binary

    --> module type: binary executable
    --> imports: Xlib, libc

How could we formulate this (purely descriptive) ?
