Right ... that's exactly it.  I'd be in favor of documenting all of them.

I was also wondering if it makes sense to have all of these as 
subprojects which must be maintained, voted on, and released 
independently.  Modularity is great but it comes with a price.  If we 
can combine or eliminate some of them it might make our lives easier.
