I'd suggest using csdoc from day 1.  It is a pain
to retrofit in later, but not that much of a hassle
to do from the start.  The reason why pnetlib didn't
use it was (a) laziness on my part, and (b) there
was no point duplicating the ECMA spec.

Please use csant for this.  I can set up the necessary
automake/autoconf magic to drive the proces if you like.
Like csdoc, it is trivial once initially set up.
