While we are on the topic..

If you run doxygen on the headers (*.h) first and then the source
files (*.cpp), it's actually going to pick up the documentation from
the second one. This is somewhat unfortunate, since mostly it the
documentation lives in headers.

For eg, Module.h[1] actually has a good description about the Module
class, and Module.cpp[2] does not. The generated documentation page[3]
unfortunately does not contain the description from Module.h.
