Doxygen does not support Python - it only works for C-like languages
(C, Java, PHP). Hence the need/desire for something (e.g. extension to
epydoc) that does this.

That said, I did not know about epydoc prior to stumbling across this
thread. Just looked at the website, and I am quite impressed... solves
a lot of problems I've been having with writing documentation for a
project at work.
