Wow. It does a lot nowadays ;)

for a high-level description of the tags it handles (i.e. its features)

In addition it generates "all-in-one compilation" rules (see --enable-final 
docu in the
same faq), automatically finds icons, docs, subdirs..... and now generates 
makefile rules
for doxygen support in kdelibs.
I think that turning this into automake features requests would make quite a 
list of requests, but in the long run I suppose it would be great to see 
have some of those features.

for its very badly documented source code ;)
