Just a quick update on this rather low-prio thing (in case anybody wants 
to step in with good ideas):

Turns out there is too big an impedance mismatch between our UNOIDL 
syntax and doxygen, so that at least a naive attempt at replacing 
autodoc with doxygen for creation of the UNOIDL reference documentation 
(see attached doxyidl.patch) produces unacceptable results:

Services, singletons, and typedefs are mapped as "variables," and 
services constructors are described as functions detached from the 
services.  Constants groups seem to be missing completely.

And its not obvious to me that this could be improved with some macro 
trickery or post processing.
