Barbara Geller and Ansel Sermersheim's CppCon 2015 talk has a very brief 
mention of D:

They ported Doxygen to C++11 with great effort and named the result 
DoxyPress.

- Since D already has ddoc, do we need DoxyPress support as well?

- If so, who would like to help Barbara and Ansel? :)

While ddoc is great (just by virtue of being there by default), Doxygen (and by extension DoxyPress) have some really nice features that are sorely missed when I'm using ddoc. Its cross-referencing, dependency graph, and annotated code abilities beat out every other "auto" documentation system I've used. I've used it often in the past on Java and C# projects, in spite of the dedicated doc tools those languages have (JavaDoc and Visual Studio's XML comment system, respectively). I'd use it in an instant if it could parse D and ddoc-style comments.

If only there were more hours in the day...
