Bug Description

When we create a new QML component that inherits properties from other components, it is not possible to add documentation for those properties. Also, if the parent component is defined outside UITK, its properties don't appear in the UITK documentation.

Examples where we need this:
- To document the "enabled" property of ActionItem
- Most of the properties of Action are defined in Ubuntu.Unity.Action, not in UITK, but we currently have no way of combining the UITK documentation with Unity.Action docs.

Perhaps Doxygen can already link to classes in another project. Quoting :
"Doxygen can also automatically generate links to existing documentation that was generated with Doxygen or with Qt's non-public class browser generator. For a Qt based project this means that whenever you refer to members or classes belonging to the Qt toolkit, a link will be generated to the Qt documentation. This is done independent of where this documentation is located!"

unity-action-doc needs to be updated to include a non-gzipped .index file, with which the linking works just fine in the branch.
