I think this can be done if we:
* reuse as much of the existing docs as possible (done for grass and
gdal, TBD for saga)
* allow power users to add their content, possibly also small images, in
an easy way.
There was some succesfull attempt at the beginning, by Matteo Ghetta (48
saga algs, if I remember correctly), but unfortunately this work seems
to have been lost.
All the best.
