We are using a very simple in-house documentation tool that produces
Latex documentation of the code.

Maybe we should release this tool if you that it could serve as a basis
for further improvement.

I am also looking seriously at CCviewer: It might be great to integrate
such a doc tool with Ulf Wiger's source code browser.

I must dig deeper to see if/how this could be feasible.
