I'm just eavesdropping on your conversation, trying to understand how
this would work. If I understand correctly you're proposing an 'autoDoc'
facility for Python along the lines of JavaDocs. But I don't see how XML
is used to mark-up the Python source code. Is that included in your idea?

In other words, is it possible to use XML as a markup language inside the
comments of another language etc. I seem to recall that this is done in
SGML but haven't heard of it in XML.
