I plan to resume my documenting activities in the coming months. I
look forward to the challenge to document Knuth's algorithms and FOP's
implementation of them in a clear and widely understandable fashion.
That's a good thing, Simon, and your documentation is very comprehensive.
However, I think the question still deserves serious consideration.
You seem to be saying that inferior algorithms should be used for the sake
of developers who don't have time to read the internals documentation. That
doesn't seem like a worthwhile trade-off to me.
