Out of curiosity, let's look at other GNOME-related modules that use
gtk-doc. What is the name of the option that enables gtk-doc?
- pango:        enable_docs
- gtk+:         enable-documentation
- graphene:     enable-gtk-doc
- atk:          enable_docs

We should indeed work to make these names consistent across GNOME
modules. Having a page on the wiki where we list standard option names
for Meson build systems would be a good start.

Has there been some effort to consolidate the names?
Looking at a few random modules I find
 with_docs, with-docs, docs, enable_docs and enable-docs
to enable the gtk-doc API documentation.
Needless to say that's quite annoying.

While at it, please consider dropping the autotoolsism and name the
option "docs", i.e. drop the with or enable prefix.
