It seems to me that this would be a very hard problem to solve. The structuring of code is arbitrary and varies from programmer to programmer and from task to task. If your requirement is to build a tool that automatically decides what functions need to be clubbed together and what needs to be broken down into more modular chunks, your are almost(?) talking about AI. Or, alternatively, your code generator should be overridable by the programmer to specify modularity rules if the programmer is unhappy with the default output.
Well, that's not really a requirement of the code generator, more a wish. But maybe it is possible to solve parts of it. But this is an issue which applys to all WYSIWYG editors, they will never replace good programmers :)
