Mmmm, i am not sure that i like this approach. "Doco" sounds
to me like one of the reasons that "Forrest" was started.
What is worrying is that this one-person thing (though i trust
Stefano to know what to do) will have no community to land in
and Apache will spawn yet another new project.

I don't mean to be cynical or anything, but Linotype and Portal
landed in Cocoon as more-or-less functional things and not much
has happened since.

I know that there is a trade-off between too much talk and not
enough doing. However, without any discussion there is a risk
that something fundamental will be missed.
