I've used it for the SVG plot project (not a reviewed library) docs

in SVN at boost-sandbox\SOC\2007\visualization

and I've used the doxygen comments-in-code system even more fully.

(This was lots of work to annotate each of the zillions of functions,

but I think the end results are much more satisfying that just the reference
section signatures).

Apart from the hard grind adding comments-in-code, it also makes the docs big.

I can send you a pdf privately ( 6Mbyte!)

A pig to get going, but results are worth it - IMO.
