Ummmm, are you SURE that you really want us to ask away?  :)  I can think of
a couple of questions.
1) How does it work?
2) What's the meaning of life?
3) Where do we go when we die?
4) Why?

If you can document those I'll bow down and kiss your feet!  LOL

Please post away.  BTW, I have two docs written, they will be committed
within a half hour.  This is all I'm doc'ing today, because I am taking
your questions as a guideline for what to document and how.  The more you
ask, the more I write.  That goes for everybody on this list BTW.  If you
have any Apache 2.0 questions, post them here, and I will document the
appropriate parts as the questions come.  Whenever there is a lull in the
questions (and I'm not coding), I'll doc other items that I think may be
