At the moment phpDocumentor does not support the altering of existing code to improve code quality but this would of course not be impossible given that it has access to the source code and line numbers.

At this moment in time the phpDocumentor team focuses its efforts on fixing bugs and the generation of documentation, although this feature is wanted we probably do not get around to implementing this functionality within a short timespan. Contributions are of course welcomed and will help with this effort

I'd at least require a runtime flag that toggles this behavior on, rather than defaulting it to on. Having us actually modify the source we're scanning is a touchy business ;-)

I certainly wouldn't consider this as anything other than an option that had to be explicitly enabled
