I don't understand your statement about "every file format".  Do you
meant fpdoc output formats? If so, why would you want limited
information in one format, but not in another format?

An interesting idea.

Yes, but the XCT files are generated by fpdoc as it parses the source code.

Can you tell fpdoc to not generate an XCT, and then you manually
create such a file from scratch using a text editor [which fpdoc can
use]?  Is so, the latter would be a huge waist of somebody's time.
