This certainly looks like a very useful tool; I'll be sure to give it a go. :)

Does it do any sanity checking such as duplicated module tags?

I notice it does indeed do some basic sanity checking. It does seem to get confused by children though - for example, specifying an AnimationMode and then a Turret complains that the turret is not a valid child of AnimationMode. It's also very fussy about style, particularly spacing, and appears to get quite a few warnings wrong (but maybe that's because its for Gen and not ZH?)

I really like the outline helper on the right, though, and as a general tool it's lovely.

Finally, it complains about parsing errors quite a lot - still merrily works, though, but spits out a NullPointerException.

2 AntiSocialKindaGuy:
Please post NPE log here, possibly - with a description, how you reached a problem.
Now about "extra" error complains. I don't know, what syntax analysis algorythms are used by Gens, but I've found a single way to determine "child/not a child" - it's indentation. If some property has larger intent, than previous one, it's considered to be a child and validated, as a child.
So, please post about problems found, I'll try to correct them. If some file is analyzed incorrectly, please upload it somewhere and send a link, or email to dmitry.astu@gmail.com
