a recurring topic is translatability of the documentation.

this encompasses extraction (paragraph-wise, though further segmentation
into sentences may be advantageous as well) and back-merging of
translated strings (either into a separate document (in particular when
apidocs are being translated), or an "on-the-fly" integration, where
qdoc takes the original sources and a translation (.ts) file, and
directly outputs translated html).

qdoc (just like doxygen) is a rather terrible format in this regard -
one needs to do quite some semantic processing of the markup before it's
clear what a "paragraph" actually is. therefore it's likely that the
string extraction/replacement needs to be a special mode of qdoc itself.
