I think we should document everything and mark the *EXTERNAL*
functions as such.  I agree with your commentary about having full
kernel docs, and approved API subset as well.  However, kernel
functions are by default internal unless we deside otherwise.

We have api docs.  Please don't say that we have none.  There's a
bunch of documentation in the man9 section of the man page.  Sure, it
is incomplete, misleading and obsolete in places, but it is

: Since we are Open Source they can have a look and use unofficial parts
: without our docs. But when we clearly say "this is for internal use
: only", they can't moan. And we as developers have a benefit from the
: docs too.

I agree with this.  I guess my only point of disagreement are the
default sense of internal/external.
