Ah, wow, yeah I actually saw this when I googled for it before posting here.

I'm just gonna come out and say that I really don't feel like taking
the few hours it might take me to try and understand what's going on
here. I really have better things to do...
Considering I don't really know latex either, I just have to wing
that, this is like 721 lines of tedious double-indirection, with no
examples in sight ;) (yet I'm being hassled about lack of examples!)

I'm kinda feeling ddoc is fairy serious problem. Doxygen is like... a
lot better :/
I'm struggling to produce docs I'm happy with. Formatting is hard,
macros for everything really sucks!
