Can it be run standalone, without the rest of doxygen? Could it be run
every commit in that case until the READMEs stablalise a bit (i.e. I

It's a loose copy of the wikimedia syntax used in the wiki, so:
- Paragraphs are separated by a blank line.

- External links are [link]
- Links to cgit are [git:path/to/file]
