Does it process the same JavaDoc style annotation? If that is true I think there is a change that we might auto generate Devhelp by running a script or something like that.

I'm not familiar with Devhelp either, but I use GTK+ a lot and Devhelp 
is a GTK+/GNOME browser, thus got interested. It seems that Devhelp 
works on gtk-doc (http://www.gtk.org/gtk-doc/), which is a from comments 
to docs project. However, gtk-doc page recommends Doxygen as a more 
polished general-purpose documentation tool(!).

It also seems to me that the Docbook XML format, would be a good format 
(and which Devhelp can read?), but it is not (yet) supported by Doxygen. 
It is on a todo list though
