Maybe you should go for a real parser here - together with a
C-syntax-grammar. Trying to cram this stuff into regexps is bound for not
catching special cases. And its gereally difficult to have a regexp _not_
macht a certain word.

Another approach would be to look for closing comments and function
definitions in several rexes, and use python-logic:

if doxy_close_rex.match(line):
   line = lines.next()
   if fun_def_rex.match(line):
