Awesome write-up. Very informative.
Imagine if the whole of the compiler/runtime was documented this well...
Glad to hear it's well-received!
I highly encourage anyone who's first diving into an unfamiliar section

I think that's a prime time to do so, when the new knowledge is still

any unexpected gaps in your own knowledge. Plus, others can help correct
any misunderstandings, and any aspects of the code that turn out to be
difficult for newcomers to grasp can be better identified.
