I'll put in a new patch with this fixed, as well as the other typo 
somebody noticed.

This was a judgement call I made, but it may be best to just leave it 
as-is to see what other people think. It is possible to remove links to 
functions by removing the () from them, but any other possible change 
from a link requires more markup.

I agree it is not appealing to have to add text to remove unwanted 
markup. Also copy & paste of docs will require adjusting all the % signs 
for the pasted location. It would be nice if Doxygen did something like 
wikipedia does, where a link to self is replaced with bold text. Another 
helpful thing might be to not link the same thing more than once in a 
single subject.

I think I will remove this patch for now.

Okay I will post a new set with these few fixes soon.
