	This is great work :-)

	I love Kendy's idea to cleanup, and improve the markup of existing
commenting so that we can use that with doxygen - that sounds like a
great high-win low effort place to start.

	After that, the problem is that ~almost all the code needs substantial
improvement, so - spending a lot of time documenting any given class is
probably not -so- worthwhile; so I wouldn't write essays on each of
them. Also - I'd stick to the C++ APIs that we have, and perhaps write
some overview documentation for modules - a good candidate might be vcl/
to start with - that has a lot of completely un-documented methods and
classes and is -very- widely used in the code.

	Looking forward to your patches ! (always best to send small patches
frequently, particularly at first, rather than saving up big changes).

	Thanks !
