The fpdoc one is distributed with FPC as a package. Of course tools like pasdoc 
and JCF cannot assume FPC, so they must implement their own, since delphi doesn't 
distribute one.

I strongly encourage all people that need some form of pascal parsing to use and
enhance the pparser unit. In due course, I'll need to enhance it to parse a complete
unit (assembler excluded) - now it only parses the interface section.
