I've been thinking about running doxygen against a daily cvs pull and 
then linking into that from the wiki.

I still think the walkthrough idea makes sense but it needs to be done 
against major chunks. I just didn't feel particularly motivated at the 
time so I went and did work on some other stuff. Anyway, I've recently 
upgraded the wiki software and patched it to make management easier. 
I've also started to develop a patch to grant action rights (eg upload 

Since BayLink's doing some work on the tables I think getting automated 
object docs would be good. Isaac suggested on IRC recently that he'd be 
amenable to (brief) doxygen style comments and I'd be interested to see 
if we could work out a way of getting code annotation patches into cvs.
The question is - do we just start submitting doxygen patches or do we 
need to figure out a way of developing a reasonable set and then making 
them available to Isaac/mythtv-dev for review?

Eventually I guess the doxygen stuff could go alongside the cvs viewer 
on mythtv.org if we do a good enough job?
