My problem with virtually all of the documentation extractors is
many require compilation or other libraries resulting in multiple
dependencies. I much prefer the smaller ones like perceps or
pce2 which are written in perl or python which are small enough
to ship with a package and thus have little additional overhead.
But then they aren't all that feature rich.
