this sounds very interesting.

Here are just some thoughts:
Actually I use argoUML [1] for the design of an T3-Extension, DBDesigner 
[2] for the SQL-work and at least Eclipse [3] for the general coding, 
phpDocumentor [4] for the api-documentation and phpUnit [5] for 
Actually I use argoEclipse [6], because of its integration in Eclipse.

A possibility to reduce the amount of different software, or to 
integrate the different software-development tools with "some" scripts 
would be very powerfull for serious development.

Some time ago I also tried to change the argoUML-PHP generator, to 
create more "TYPO3-like" classes, but ... (I'm a php-programmer not a 

The last thing I want to mention ist, that such a "all-in-one device 
suitable for every purpose" (german: eierlegende wollmilchsau), which 
integrates e.g uml-modelling, php-code-generation, testcase-generation, 
api-generation and perhaps SQL-generation would not only help TYPO3, but 
also a lot of other people in the php-world.

I would appriciate to assist in this development.
