Vitaliy from pentax-hack.info suggested that the "File - Produce
File - Dump Database to IDC File" could be used to output a script
that could re-generate almost all of the state of the IDB file
without having to distribute any Canon code.

It looks like it works! I haven't tested it by reloading the
firmware image and reapplying the symbols, but my spot check of the
symbols had most everything in there. We would likely want to strip
it down somewhat to eliminate the autogenerated symbols and other
junk that make it 13 MB uncompressed.

This should be a quick way to get new devs up to speed on analyzing
existing firmware dumps. We could even create a hg tree for
versioning it so that new symbols can be added to a master file.

Thanks Trammel,

This is definitely the way to go. I 'produced' my current MAP file,
then ran your IDC against, then carefully used loadmap to import my
map back. The few errors that I saw in the 'loadmap' stage were due to
IDA having previously allowed me to duplicate routine names.
