I keep thinking that this shouldn't be hard to do - just do the same
parsing for -callback as for -type, and present it in the output.  I
haven't had time to look into it in detail though; it would definitely
be a larger change than the one linked above.

If anyone would find the time to work on this and submit a patch, I for
one would be happy :)  Meanwhile I document my behaviours with <dl>,
<dt> and <dd>.

Magnus
