        Description

        The method in AbstractDoclet is poorly conceived since it requires that a reference to itself should
        be passed in the first parameter. This parameter is redundant, but simply removing it would cause
        a clash between a static method and an instance method on the same name, which is illegal.
        Therefore, in addition to removing the redundant parameter, the method AbstractDoclet.start must
        also be renamed.
