It is quite easy to alter the output. For example, adding the code below to
index.html makes all instances of 'actor' in the code link to an explanation.

  App.processors.push(function(documentation) {
    $(documentation[0]).parent().children(".code").each(function() {
      this.innerHTML = this.innerHTML.replace(/([^\w])(actor)([^\w])/,
          "$1<a href='#clutter-basics/actor.html'>$2</a>$3");

It's actually not as easy as it could be, but that can be fixed. :-)

Ubiquity's documentation contains some other examples of extensions, like links
to external API docs, defined in index.html.
