Also note, that he uses @defgroup and @ingroup for grouping. I think this is 
a very good approach and we should use it all over KDE (where it makes 

Groups coming into my mind for kdecore are fox example:
 - Core Classes
   KApplication etc
 - DCOP (DBUS) Architecture
 - Localization
   KTimezone, KLocale, etc.
 - Calendar System
   Contains *Calendar* classes
 - Configuration Management
   KConfigBase etc.
   maybe even subgroups for KGlobal*, KStandardDirs
 - Completion System
   KCompletion etc.
 - Launching Processes
   KProcess, KShellProcess etc.
 - NET Window Manager Specification
   NET*, KWin, etc.
 - Loading Libraries at runtime
   KLibLoader etc.
 - Network Support
   KSocket etc.
 - Icons and Themes

possible to bring it in a good shape ;) At some points subgroups make
