Hi Kendy - thanks for the suggestions!

Now that you mention it, I think the tool should have been more careful with as well. In that case it should be safe to
collapse the leading /*********** into just /**, right? 

I think I'll take a peek at how Doxygen itself parses comments for some
inspiration. I suppose as a quick heuristic I can just look for things like
"@param" and "@return", or "\brief" and if found treat blocks as Doxygen
comments. Though the single line /// format makes things trickier... Anyway,
I'll play around with it today.

Thanks again!
