I've merged this into trunk now.

It turns out that supporting variadic template parameters in template
specializations needs some improvements here, so I've made a few
changes in the doc branch:

1. There are actually two different templates for generating ids for
functions, so I combined them. The new version uses the function name
if it's unique, otherwise it generates the id and adds the unique
numeric id on the end.

2. I changed the id generating templates, so that instead of calling
'fully-qualified-name' they call a new template 'fully-qualified-id'.
This will make it easier to make changes to the generated ids. For a
start it replaces dots that aren't seperators with underscores - this
is needed for template packs. The exisiting code converts the three
dots to three slashes (i.e. directory separators).

3. At the moment all members of template specializations have a
numeric id added to the end of its generated id - but the generated id
is often the numeric id anyway, so you end up with something like
'id253720-bb_id253720'. This only adds the numeric id when generating
the id from the full name.

I'll merge these changes into trunk soon if there's no objections -
and probably then merge all of this to the release branch.
