Being in the thick of documentation right now, I think it would be a
great SOC
project to try to extend/adapt Doxygen to ameliorate these issues
while preserving
it's nice aspects. It would also be great to extend it so that code
snippets can be
directly inserted by name into the documentation (sort of like
Knuth's WEB system
in reverse) so that the code and dox stay in sync (this is one of the
todos on the
Doxygen web site already). That said, I like a lot of the aspects of
Doxygen - better
control over sectioning and pages and extended syntax for mainpage.h
be a great extension.
