Before you invest too much effort in fancy conversion scripts ...

I really want to change the documentation format to something based on
SGML - this should be much easier to parse than the present m4
macro-based stuff, and allow use to use more sophisticated tools for
the construction and processing of documentation.

Like much of R, the present solution was just a temporary hack ...
But it is something which is getting to the top of the list.

Any filter you create should have a back-end which could be (easily)
adapted to a new format.
