function corresponds to what function name is generated i.e. lp_xxxx and
lpcfg_xxxx. In the case where no name is specified, the parameter name
with underscores instead of spaces will be generated automatically
(unless it's marked not to generate).
generated_function = "0" if you don't want to generate an lp function
from this parameter. This is basically for special cases, which may
happen where there is some kind of conflict currently.
synonym is currently marked for any synonyms, but normal synonyms do not
usually have an xml page, so this only actually appears for inverted
synonyms currently. Currently marking a synonym means that no lp
function is also generated.
constant refers to whether or not the parameter should be constant, but
this is actually only currently used for strings. Constant in this case
indicates whether or not substitutions occur with the string, I believe.
parm, I was actually never entirely sure of. Some of the functions are
in the form FN_XX_PARM_XX and they take a different parameter,
share_params (instead of an integer which corresponds to the service
index). If anyone could shed light on it, that would be helpful. There's
not actually that many of them. And they look nearly obsolete in the s4
But yeah, with all this metadata stuff, it's previous obvious to see
which things were outliers.
