Could you at least add Doxygen comments for all the public macros
(and other items)? Marco comments can go right before the macro,
just like functions and types. However, if a macro's definition is
conditional, maybe you should delay the documentation until after the
definition. Look at BOOST_PRIVATE_WILD_ASSERT in <http://
big_radix_whole_core.hpp> for an example of the latter.
