Hmm... I can see the desire for them, certainly, but I personally would like the docs to build
cleanly under the standard doclet. Personally I usually use FIXME for "urgent" to-dos and
XXX for slightly less urgent ones, then just grep (or whatever) for them. How much prettier
is XDoclet than grepping, out of interest? (I'd be quite happy with a general TO-DO non-tag,
or whatever, if you want something to search on.)

Alternative idea: keep the @todo in, and I nag once a week to make sure they get done :)
