I looked quickly at this, but I didn't see any documentation -
has any actually been produced?
I must admit I'm slightly dubious.
While much documentation written by geeks is bad,
the only good documentation I have seen _was_ written by geeks.
I'm willing to try, but I don't have much confidence
that documentation written by people who acknowledge they have no expertise
will be very useful.
[I'm just wondering if a book on the calculus by someone who admitted
they didn't know much about the subject could possibly be of value.]
