Why can't it always be derived from the module-name? Every module must
have a unique identifier anyway. I'm sure you have a reason, but please
spell it out...

HDDRULE, HDRSCAN, baby. I'm telling you, doing doc dumps as build
actions has lots of advantages. You could even extract doc from comment
blocks, so there's no issue with interpretation of $() or space/newline
(though I guess strings work pretty well in Jam).
