Hi Taco,

from my point of view Cweb/Noweb generate C code (as do flex and bison),
whereas Doxygen uses (annotated) C code to generate documentation. Thus they
fall into quite different categories.

Cweb is special because it is built as part of TL, but otherwise probably
much like Noweb. Flex/bison are special because they are directly supported
by Automake. Cweb is supported in the TL build system via a shell script
that handles all issues for parallel make, but still needs special build
rules -- Noweb could be handled in a similar way.
