It looks very interesting (though I thought the layout shown was a bit
thinly spread out).

(Though I think we should not lose sight of the considerable advantages to
be gained from using Doxygen even 'as is' either standalone or in autodoc
mode with Quickbook .

Things as trivial as a list of macros (commented of course) can save users a
lot of hassle.

But I agree it doesn't do all we want yet.

We should also consider asking for improvements - Doxygen is being active
maintained (as I discovered when I suggested (wrongly as it turned out) that
some definitions might not be output).

But a 'more tame' support would of course be even better ;-)

To let the Pythonly/Unixly challenged get a feel for what it will do on
their pet project, posting a standalone Windows MSI would be a big help.
