one of the reasons for upgrading doc after such a long time was to add 
the ability to document other kind of code beside macros/envs so it how 
essentially offers what dox offered in the past but with a somewhat 
different API and a bit more functionality.

the other reason for upgrading was to enable hyperref support out of the 
box, because this is also usually wanted/needed.

If could would do that and talk to Didier and Federico, it would be very 
much appreciated ... we are  stretched a bit thin, but if you prefer 
I'll do it.

Might also be worth talking to Scott because his skeletons could then 
perhaps also see some update
