(Well maintenance anyway - long term I hope that the whole toolchain can be made to work better and
faster, perhaps using Doxygen's forthcoming ability to use the Clang compiler to process the C++
code directly. At present it does a pretty good job of parsing C++ code, but it doesn't pretend to
be a real compiler. This should mean it will not be confused by template and metastuff to which
Boost is addicted ;-) and which cause some wrinkles at present.)
