Hi Hans,
If you already know LaTeX, you might experiment with the *.dtx docstrip 
capability.
It has some pain points if you're developing from scratch, but I use it once 
I've got a system in reasonable shape. You have full control over the 
display and you can make the code files go anywhere you like when you run 
pdflatex on your file.
