[erlang-questions] using edoc programatically

Hi!

edoc can't be used programatically, it does its magic and just crashes
if something is wrong. It would be much more useful (at least for us,
tool builders :-) if it would have an API much more like the compiler:
in case of errors/warnings, return them in a list.
Also, it should not stop on the first error, but continue at least
with the other files in the processing queue, so that one can catch as
many problems as possible with each run.

I was planning to make a private copy of edoc and try to hack it
together according to these wishes, but thought that maybe Richard C.
has a slow day and might lend a hand :-)  From browsing the code, it
seems there's quite a bit to rewrite...

best regards,
Vlad
