I experience the same from time to time in MSEide+MSEgui project. People 
complain missing documentation and write if there were good 
documentation tools (which actually means if I would make them) they and 
other users would write documentation.
Don't believe such statements, it is not true. The mentioned Lufdoc from 
Lars is such a good tool for user contributed source documentation, it 
exists since a long time. AFAIK there is not a single Lufdoc 
contribution from MSEde+MSEgui users other than Lars.
The only thing what would happen if you or me would build the perfect 
documentation tool is that they would use that tools in their projects...
People who are willing to work on documentation are able to work with 
existing possibilities or improve the tools oneself.
