This does sound promising/a good first step. But it doesn't really answer Charles' question about a standard (which would be useful to have to help guide doc editor design).
it does - I looked into synopsis because we could use rest, and I don't think anyone wants to go the doxygen route. Just putting rest comments into sources is not useful (since just *extracting* them is non trivial for C/C++). I think the documentation project taught us that being able to build a decent looking document is required for people to actually document things.
Also, I may have not been clear, but when I said I thought about it, I meant I have tried it and it did not work after one hour of two of tinkering (then I realized that you need to parse C to do anything useful).
