for the most recent work. We are close to having the documentation
correct enough to auto-generate from (based on a diff of the results
from the generator script and the existing param_functions.c).
This has been a wild ride, I really look forward to what the next week
brings. The auto-generation is on-track, but even more importantly, we
are finding and clearly calling out all the special cases.
Another advantage of this work is that should someone wish to re-create
SWAT, the XML documentation will now provide a clear and correct set of
metadata to base that on.
