What's a point to make such changes in a first place? I don't see how 
it's useful to have automatically extracted partially filled function 
names from sources (if it's a purpose of these documentation headers of 
course). You always have sources, everything that might be useful for 
development is in as code or comments for not-so-obvious parts.

What is really helpful for documenting behaviour that isn't documented 
officially is writing test cases to show bugs or to prevent regressions.
