It sounds fascinating.  I'm delighted that Noweb might help enable
such an interesting and ambitious project.

Readers might be interested to know that Noweb supports documentation
in LaTeX, troff, HTML or plain text, so there is some flexibility on
the weaving side as well.

My opinion is that this would be easy to do using a Noweb filter.

For complex documents, we have wound up storing both `code' and `text'
in Noweb code chunks.  I have not explored clever ways of `weaving'
such documents.

Good luck!
