There is no resistance - and it is being done. Every month we document
various APIs, man-pages, etc so that knowledge won't be lost. The
end-result of that is to create a PDF similar to the PowerPC architecture

I have not been pointing you to it, b/c as of right what we have is
raw data (various header files growing in size) that keep on growing.
I need to hire/cajole an editor to help us get from the "raw" brain
dump to a book and some sense of milestones/schedule or whatever one
does in the book-world.

And Peter, just in case it is not clear, every suggestion you make is
appreciated and taken seriously. If there are things that have been
dropped or forgotten by me - please remind me.
