I've added this in all the namespace detail section and this is effective at reducing the items that
are in the C++ reference section (from Quickbook).

This is what a typical *user* wants - the implementation stuff in namespace detail (for example) is
just clutter.

But an *author or maintainer* might want all the detail sections included in the C++ reference

I can achieve this by horribly hacking the *.*pp files to change all INTERNAL ONLY to INTERNAL AS
WELL - or something.

Can you suggest a better way of switching this INTERNAL ONLY feature on/off?
