But the input for the docbook comes from comments in our (text)  
source files.  Unless I am mistaken, we are encouraged to use html  
markup in these comments, which to my mind makes them ugly and hard  
to read in my source code editor.  What I was suggesting is that the  
text comments be filtered through markdown when they are first  

Probably you and Ben are not talking about the ref man (which is what  
I am thinking about), which is why it seems like I might be hi!
