Hi Chris,
I think this is a fairly fair comparison. Would you mind mentioning my 
oink fork, pork? It addresses some of the shortcomings that you 
mentioned. The main differences between oink and pork are that
* Integrates with MCPP to allow to "accurately map from a source 
location in the AST to the original position before preprocessing.". 
Several Mozilla-specific refactoring tools are provided
* Is actively developed (some full-time developers)
* Provides a scriptable static analysis tool, Dehydra
