If the argument type is | generic, then rep="repeat" would be a valid way to represent that. I suppose. Funcsynopsis has varargs for this though. I guess methodsynopsis doesn't have anything similar.

What would it mean to say <methodsynopsis> <methodname>foo</> <methodparam> <parameter>param1</> </methodparam> <methodparam rep="repeat"> <parameter>param2</> </methodparam> <methodparam> <parameter>param3</> </methodparam> ...
