I'm new to the whole annotation processing area, so apologies if this is
something that should have been obvious.

Mentally, I'm picturing a 'front end / back end' design, where a user could
use GUI tools such as Dali provides to generate annotations into their code,
and then I could plug in my own annotation processor to see those
annotations and generate the correct back-end code for our proprietary
persistence layer.

I'm just wondering if it breaks something if my processor 'claims' those
annotations; because I would assume Dali needs to see changes users might
make manually to the annotations in order to update the model. Does Dali
install an annotation processor to do this, or is it responding directly to
events from the editor? If Dali does have its own annotation processor, is
it possible for the two to play nice together (i.e., Dali continues to do
everything needed to make the GUI tools work, but doesn't do any code
generation)
