[chimera-dev] Programmer's reference

We decided at or Chimera developer meeting today that we would revive
the programmer's reference on the web. It will still be auto-generated
from code comments, probably from a newer version of HappyDoc. Eric
Pettersen will look into it. It may be many months away since we have
lots of higher priority projects.
