Is this the right fix? Shouldn't it be possible to generate docs based on
other targets as an option? Or possibly something like a superset for all
targets (showing the differences)? The current situation is that
Linux-specific extensions to common units (e.g. variables, functions,
etc.) are always included in the docs, while extensions/additions existing
on other targets are not documented at all (and just adding their
description to the respective .xml files wouldn't make any difference to
that if I understand it correctly)...
