Continuing to write on our document (formatted using doxygen and generated in a number of editions with slightly different options), we're feeling slightly limited by \internal. Thus we'd like to suggest adding e.g.:

  • \endinternal to optionally start including content again before the page structure would do it.
  • \ipar A single internal paragraph.

I.e. some way to make a limited portion of the text internal. Typically we'd use it to:

Some text about a feature.

\test Details about testing that part of the feature.
\test ...

Some more text about a different aspect of the feature.

\test Details about testing that aspect of the feature.
\test ...

Obviously we could create subsubsections, but there are instances when that would feel strange (especially if the internal documentation is excluded).

Best regards,

ALIASES = internal="\if INTERNAL\n"

and then enable them using
