Unfortunately I do not have the time for that; there are more than 100
people in their AUTHORS file (attached).  However, I don't think we
would be finished at that point, because in GNOME-related libraries,
gtk-doc is *the* documentation tool.  If we could fix this issue
strategically -- i.e. with license hacking -- documentation for all
libraries in that stack could benefit.  Sure it would take a little
longer, and we don't know if it is possible, but it's definitely
something to consider.
