Add library/application which does javadoc like 
processing of .tcl files and thus auto-generates 
documentation.

I have an almost finished implementation of TIP 40 that just
does this (well, it uses the conventions from the Style
Guide by Ray Johnson). It requires some further testing and
it should use - in my opinion - the doctools format as the
default (right now it uses the TIP format, but as all is
done by traversing a tree of the documentation elements that
should not be too hard).

Note: For a true tcllib application we need a pure tcl 
replacement of tclparser. This is heavy weight against
it.

See http://www.oche.de/~akupries/soft/autodoc/
for existing app, also http://www.oklin.com/zdoc/.

Should/could make use of tclpro/tclparser for this to be a 
robust system (no execution of code!).
