Doxygen has always failed miserably at understanding template code
I've generated of any complexity. Worse, it's written in Perl, which I
personally find incomprehensible ;-/.

Part of the reason I'm stumping for Synopsis is that it contains a
real C++ parser, so it doesn't fall into the same holes.
