I was looking into this a while ago and you can add documentation to
the "Wine API" by properly formatting it in your patches, for example:
is generated from the code here:

Personally, I think that it would be really good to do a better job of
documenting the API functions (particularly edge cases).  I'm
currently very busy with work, but if Alexandre is ok with
documentation-only patches then this is something I'm tempted to jump
on (in the areas where I have sufficient familiarity) when I have some
more free time.
