digitalmars.D.learn - Automatic insertion of D-style multiline-comments in Emacs

Have anybody added logic to Emacs' `comment-dwim` that 
automagically inserts a (Ddoc-style) multi-line comment like

/** ...
  */
void foo
{
}

if the cursor is currently in front of a (function) definition 
(or declaration)?

I realize that the challenge here is context detection; perhaps 
`beginning-of-defun()` could be used?

my IDE AST tool does this and even more (detection of parameters, return section and throw section): https://github.com/BBasile/Coedit/blob/master/dastworx/src/ddoc_template.d https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VEVqSItCKfo&index=11&list=PLzk8A0LUvEOV-OMdz09jfOahwnKoA2na_ though you would need a bridge to interpret and use the output in Emacs.
