Hey Robb,

This is awesome! I think very valuable as well. To start adding
annotations, take a look at how the FieldPlugin (JPA Specific) does it -

That should give you almost everything you need. You'll want to make sure
you use the Forge Resource API to do your work (don't use regular File()

Anything else you need?
