Yeah, that's exactly the stuff I found missing from my first run of auto-generated docs that I had in mind when asking the question.

Good to know in case it turns out to be a mess to get that to work, but I'm thinking it might be simple.

It could probably even be an extra "verbose documentation" command line switch to bro that will create both the public and the private interface docs and then we can decide later if it's actually useful to provide.
