Hi, Seb.  Yep, the footnote appears in my draft message but not in the final
message.  Don't know what happened.  I'm sure this isn't a mystery to anybody,
but here's the reference:

Thanks, this all makes good sense to me.  I guess I was basically wondering if
people were routinely using some combination of Doxygen and Org mode -- maybe
including Doxygen markup inside the Org file, then running doxygen on the
tangled output or ...  This is evidently not a common/useful way of working.
