Show that you can program that parser properly in CodeChecker and
share your branch on github to test it.

I am quite sure you did not look at the code yet; your proposal is
just abstract. If you would have looked at the code, you would know
much more specific which data structure is required for CodeChecker to
store it properly in the database.
