We have a dynamic page like this for ReactOS though I don't like it
because it only supports implemented and unimplemented tags in the
function comment. Having a semi-implemented tag would be nice.
Alexandre did not like our use of the @implemented and @unimplemented
tags at the time because it did not take in to account APIs that were
partly implemented like your propose.

It would be really great if the two projects could agree on a system.
