Yes, I think so. Before rewriting to SGML I wanted to solicit opinions
on what should be hidden away in a for-developers README file and what
parts deserve exposure in the public docs.

It didn't quite make the first cut as I have to make a couple of edits
to reflect late changes. I should be able to follow up with that later

The protocol design documentation actually predates the plugin its
self, though it saw a few changes where it became clear something
wouldn't work as envisioned. It's been quite a pleasure starting with
a detailed design, then implementing it.

Yep, writing that up at the moment. I didn't want to make the initial
post too verbose.
