sounds like a job for a sqlite db. (see e.g. tools/sql.sh)
 [please can we rename "sql.sh" to something more informative?]

for tools/module_synopsis.sh what I did is try a clean build with
all options turned on, then run though the bin/ and scripts/ dirs
and run --interface-description on everything.

another way is to cd into doc/html/ and parse all the files there.
(html is a marked-up format at its root, doesn't hurt to use that)
