Well, fpmake contains the dependencies of the units. 
Therefor you should be able to place the units in the correct order.
So my idea would be to enforce the order by looking at the dependencies.

All that is needed is to list the units that should be documented;
The engine can then look in the list of dependencies, and if there 
are dependencies found, they can be added first.
