Just a quick suggestion: How about using Tralics [1] to transform  
your file to XML, and then use XSLT (Using, e.g., xsltproc [2]) to  
create your metadata file? After all, Tralics is a full TeX  
interpreter, with the sole purpose of producing XML, and XSLT is the  
standard mechanism for transforming XML files and extracting reports  
etc. from them...

It may be that I missed your question completely, though -- sorry in  
that case :)
