OK, pushed.

Hm, sure - but I guess that in general needs a general knowledge of at
least a whole module, which is not really the case for me. Or you mean
a group for each subdirectory, which is probably something I can do? :)

Yes, I think it's more important to have a mission statement for a lot
of classes than a few fully documented ones. :)

That's what the script does - normally doxygen emits tons of warnings
and this way it's easy to search for classes where there isn't a single
line of doxygen comment at all.

OTOH in the long run I agree with Lubos that it would be nice to have
methods documented as well, unless that makes merging really hard. (I
don't think it makes merging harder than comment cleanup does.)
