Hi Vivek,

As for me, I Doxygen's parser seems to fall out of line too often. For 
example, you may find many invalid SLoc references while browsing the 
online Clang and LLVM documentation generated by Doxygen. Using a proper 
parser for the documentation generation seems like a great idea, so 
Clang's parsing seems to be a reasonable choice.

By the way, I am a GSoC 2015 student myself, don't hesitate to ping me 
if you have any questions regarding GSoC.
