Yes, and now Clang has Python bindings to make that easier. I wonder who
wrote those? ;)

We can't actually accept proposals to work on documentation, since it's
Summer of /Code/. This came up a couple of times on Google's extremely high
traffic, high annoyance mentor mailing list last year.

Actually, writing Doxygen for Clang would be a /great/ project, but I don't
think we could mentor it. Could we? Plus, I don't think Clang is quite
stable enough in the areas where we need it to be stable. It's pretty close,
