If you are guilty of the same sin and have silently extended
docstrings.lisp somewhere, I would much appreciate getting a copy of
you version, along with notes of what it does differently.

Guilty. I did texinfo-docstrings a few years ago. David Lichteblau
improved upon that, and later started generalizing it onto
parse-docstrings, which purports to handle various markup syntaxes in
Going through the commit log, I am reminded of the following extra
* script for generating a doc/ dir with a Makefile and other boilerplate.
* syntax highlighting for Lisp code examples.
* pretty CSS for the HTML output. (At one point, I tried to emulate
the Ediware doc style for the single-page html output format. IIRC, I
didn't succeed due to texinfo limitations.)
* Makefile/script that generates all texinfo-supported formats and
generates an html listing thereof.
It uses closer-to-mop in an attempt to be portable, but I think some
non-MOP introspection bits are missing.
I think  and  are worthwhile projects, not sure what the best
way would be to coordinate work with SB-TEXINFO, in particular given
the requirement to be a SBCL contrib. (I assume that's because it's
needed to build SBCL's documentation.) Any ideas?
