I stand corrected.  You are correct, it was an insensitive post to make.
Clearly, there is always room for alternative development efforts.  I had
high hopes for perceps when I first became aware of its existance but it
never panned out.  doxygen, on the other hand, is here today and does an
incredible job.  When sysnopsis matures, I will certainly give that the
once-over and see how it meets my needs.  Until then, good luck to all!
