I tried to add this to gen_smtp (https://github.com/Vagabond/gen_smtp)
and it blows up with:

==> gen_smtp (doc)
edoc: error in layout 'edown_layout':
edoc: error in doclet 'edown_doclet': {'EXIT',error}.
ERROR: doc failed while processing /Users/andrew/gen_smtp:

So I'm assuming I've got some edge case you didn't consider.
