Code comments can be about high-level view too.  Existing comments in
the beginning of event-loop.h and remote-notif.c are about high-level

Document is generated from the comments, and we need some special 
annotations or markups to identify these comments are descriptive views 
for a certain module or components.  Doxygen or other documentation 
generators are able to do that.
