I think it sounds like a good idea; especially for encouraging new
developers to start working on the code base.

Subject: Doxygening Mach and Hurd

During my time correcting the entropy patch to meet the requirements to be
accepted, I noticved the coding style would make it extremely easy to doxyify
the codebase.

For those of you unfamilar with Doxygen, its similar
to Javadoc and other solutions that use markup in the code
base to generate documentation. I believe one of the bigger
problems with mach, and especially getting new developers is
that mach itself is fairly undocumented, especially its internals
(the only real documentation of IPC I know if is Thomas' guide).
I think it would be in the projects best interests if we start
doxyifing the codebase (which is fairly easy to do; I learned
how to use use doxygen in about five minutes the first time
I ever used it).

Any thoughts and comments on doxygening the codebase?
