Yes! As long as I can write it:
# Specifies the documentation for a rule in the current module.
# If called in the global module, this documents a global rule.
rule document-rule (
name # The name of the rule.
: docs + # The documentation for the rule.
I think we may need something like my previous suggestion eventually,
for when argument documentation grows large. But let's cross that bridge
when we come to it.
