I think most people agree with that, the problem is that it takes some
time to get right and there currently aren't that many active doc
committers since they over time seem to gravitate towards src...

doc are unfortunatly not as good as src, and even more ports, at
getting new people.

Who is gravitated towards other things for a while....
