This isn't as bad as it sounds, but at this point I don't think it's 
very important anyway, the current API docs are, for the most part, 
pretty good.  My only complaint is that the structs/typedefs are 
documented in the header files and functions are documented in the 
source files, but I guess there advantages to this also.

AFAIK, Sphinx can only do "autodoc" for Python, unless maybe with the 
Doxygen tie-in that Lex mentioned.
