Thank you for the time spent and the feedback.

I guess I was so worried with rationales and any feature that could be
minimally polemic that my docs end up being too abstract. I'll fix this
gradually. For a quick start, I've added the following text on the "front

I'll evolve it as soon as I finish the current task, which is converting
Doxygen -> QuickBook and I'm making progress[1].

I'd like to encourage people to try the library. It's cross-platform and
