Allow metadata support documentation to be fully autogenerated

Right now, the metadata support documentation is autogenerated from the manually-maintained components/autogen/src/meta-support.txt file. Maintaining that file is a bit of a headache, as we're constantly adding new formats and updating support for existing formats. It would be really great if the 'gen-meta-support' Ant target in the 'autogen' component took care of autogenerating meta-support.txt, in addition to generating the docs themselves.

  • Resolution set to fixed

(In [6762]) Initial work on fully autogenerated metadata support documentation; it's a bit slow, but seems to work. 'ant gen-meta-support' in components/autogen will now regenerate meta-support.txt, so manual editing should no longer be needed. Closes #516.
