Ahh, I see. You meant that I should include all my original stuff as 
@doc. I didn't get that.

Well, I guess that would work but I would be loosing out of something 
I've heard plans of - getting Dialyzer to benefit from type declarations 
in edoc format, and also pointing out to you when you've failed to make 
your documentation match your implementation ;).

That was actually what made me want to spend all the time and energy it 
would require to transform my documentation into edoc format.
