I can't talk for Luca, but I don't think we have explicit design docs for that part. I think there is some useful content in the mail archives (search for "Knuth"). Other than that, I realized that the algorithm described in Knuth's "Digital Typography" is now in our codebase quite literally (although by now with some extensions). I had no trouble tracing back code parts to the book. Understanding the algorithm itself as described by Knuth gets you 80% of the way to start the implementation as I see it.
