Hartmut, thank you for clarification.

Given that, in spite of the fact I like Doxygen, I would
stick to Quickbook only. There is number of reasons, in general,
Quickbook and manually crafted documentation is of higher quality
for users, what's been proven/suggested during the review.
Also, I large amount of Doxygen content injected in header files,
especially highly templetized, as disturbing a bit.
