Also, the Evolve survey was pretty clear that we utterly suck in the 
documentation arena. Playing with words doesn't solve that, writing 
documentation and maintaining it does.

We may change the rules, and that's perhaps what we should do, but that 
doesn't begin with "let's ship a new module without docbook", that should 
begin with a cunning plan to move to online docs, the wiki, etc. and integrate 
that into the help function of applications. Right now the help button is a 
sort-of catch22, docs are usually useless, so I don't see the necessity to 
write them, so they're more useless (or not present).

Anyway, discussion in this thread is moot, since I've committed a docbook 
which is hopefully helpful for those who know to find it.

Cheers,
