Sure, and I prefer doxygen myself. However, some may consider it bloated.

Yeah, good idea.

Do you mean the patches to add the document generation?

I was rather thinking on the way of inline documentation first,
HTML/DocBook/etc. later. Because this is most useful to current and
potential developers. Once there is at least some documentation then
generating some document will be worthwile.

But I can add a slightly modified default Doxyfile, of course - this is
the only thing needed to generate a documentation.
