Perhaps I should preface this somewhat, I am pretty much a
Boost.Accumulators virgin. Vaguely aware of them, they are there.

Definitely a notice at wiring them up for practical use. Although it
seems compelling that I might be able to use them for this

Thank ye...

Changing my tact a bit, would someone tell me what it means for

For instance, if I instead define my accumulator to look something like this:

typedef accumulator_set<dchem::drivers::accel::accelerometer_data_t,
        stats<tag::rolling_mean> > accelerometer_data_accumulator_set;

However, when I initialize its ctor, I would like to specify the
tag::rolling_window::window_size, but this appears to be enabled with
the DOXYGEN #ifdef?

I'm sure there's a reason why, but why not just have the declaration
there, no #ifdef?
