I agree about DOxygen, I looked at it myself.

Simplification does sound like a good thing. Indeed, perhaps a 
reimplementation of the same idea; to be frank, it had never occurred to 
me, and as usual, using the Lua parser to do the work solves a lot of 
parsing problems.

If you're interested in doing anything like this yourself, I would of 
course be delighted! I suppose it would be good for Doris too to have it 
simplified and separated.
