I have the impression that you misread my answer. I simply recommended to
replace ".h" with ".hpp" (not ".qpp") which is the boost standard extension
for header files. Letting the user specify the extension (or extensions) for
files to be moc'ed would even be more flexible. Then you could continue using
".h" extensions for your header files and I can continue using ".hpp"

Did you again misread my original text or are there indeed features in Jam
that support Doxygen? If so, where can I find more documentation?
