Yeah, that is expected.

Perhaps my comments weren't clear enough. Sorry! I didn't actually
tried to parse it with Sphinx. Just wanted to hint you about that,
as testing the docs with Sphinx could be useful when writing
documentation.

Usually, things like function declarations produce warnings if they
contain pointers, e. g. something like:

foo(void *bar);

as asterisks mean italics. It would complain about the lack of
an end asterisk.

In order to avoid that, and to place them into a box using monotonic fonts,
I usually add "::" at the preceding line, e. g.:

::

foo(void *bar);

or:

some description::

foo(void *bar)

on all functions (even the ones that don't use asterisks, as the
html output looks nicer.

I double-checked this patch: it doesn't contain anything that would
cause warnings or parse errors. Still, I would prefer to use
**not** instead of *not*, and would add the "::", but that's my
personal taste.

Thanks,
Mauro
