Macros. Just like, how does the compiler find the same file, but for
different platforms. The concept of macros are well known and already
used in a lot of places. fpdoc will just be another use case.

Based on my XML sample I posted a while back. The <unit> tag could
maybe be moved under the <module> tag. Or, looking at my original XML
sample, add a mapping (unit to module mapping) to the <unit> tag.

See previous paragraph.

Same here. Michael doesn't seem keep to my idea either, so I very much
doubt it will make it into fpdoc. Core developers always trump mere
contributors like us. ;-)
