It ain't simple, but:

1. Hijack Doxygen's parsing to extract definition elements from headers
2. Use special comments in the HTML to distinguish the auto-generated
sections from the sections to be edited by users
3. When the script is run again, it uses these comments to keep user edits
which are still valid.

How would the Python script you had in mind work?
