Possibly ikiwiki? It speaks Markdown, it has a plugin mechanism which
can add new syntax, and it has a real VCS (git is recommended) behind
the scenes. Yes it's written in Perl, and yes the default "anti-theme"
(as used on its own website) is rather spartan; but it's considerably
more structured Perl than gtk-doc :-) and there are nicer themes
(shipped with it or third-party).

 9. Don’t put big code examples in C comments; move them to separate C
    files instead, which can be compiled stand-alone.

Can I add "... and this works for out-of-tree builds" to the wishlist?
This has been a long-standing bug in Debian's copy of GLib (which we
compile multiple times - production, debug, and a build with cut-down
dependencies for the installer - so in-tree is not really an option).
