Here's what I need:  Show me a doxygen example of a former docbook
man page.  I'd like to know what I'm getting myself into.

And what about the fact that the man pages for the Cygwin commands
are also embedded into the user manual.  Will that still work?

If that looks fine, I have no problem, but right now I tend to stick
to docbook so I only have a single layout to write any Cygwin docs...

Other than that, if you take over cygwin-docs, I'm happy for cgf, but
I have nothing to do with this decision :)
