It transforms ddoc mark-up into TeX mak-up?

Would it allow (theoretically) for literate programming?

weave("file.ld"); // creates file.tex
tangle("file.ld"); // creates file.d

I still would like DDoc to allow for some sectioning:

section: sectionName
some section comments. This section is all about fun and foo.

// fun doc

//foo doc

section: next section,about bar and baz

But, as far as I understand it, right the comments are all associated to the
next declaration.
