Putting the documentation into the comments may very well be the way to
go. But this implies putting a more embellished magic comment in. If you
don't want it in the code, at lest we need a pointer/marker. So either
way we need an easy to parse/grep comment. 

Personally I think that embedding the docs in the documentation is
probably the way to go. For code related docs, I think it's the only
feasible approach (see how successful Javadoc is).

We can start with a just a marker and a Janitoral task of enhancing the
markers with the appropriate markup and documentation. We just need to
decide what to do, and document it on the Wiki. I'm sure folks will help
out with this if there is a clear direction on where we want to go.
