Fwiw, my hack to rdoc to generate tags "sort of" works, but the
prototype made me think its not the right way  to go. I can't recall the
name anymore, but stdlib has library now that has a SAX-like API that
tells you about the code as it is being parsed - I think this is the way
to go.

It is actually quite easy to generate tags, the requirements are that
you have access to the full source of the line so that you can construct
a regex. But I don't have the time to work on this (or anything) right
