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.

Why is it that all of the instruments seeking intelligent life in the
universe are pointed away from Earth?
