In a perfect world, yes. However, no software is ever bug-free, and when
software is constantly evolving, it will always have features which are
not documented, bugs which are not listed, and so on. That's reality, 
and it's reality for every software project out there. Otherwise we'd 
just release v1.0 and be done with it. :)

Anyone is welcome to apply for a cvs account and help out, of course.

I don't recall saying that this shouldn't be documented.
