There is some documentation and I'll bring it into the public space soon (need 
to fix a few HTML issues), however its very important to note that in the 
1.3.x series the APIs have and will continue to change rapidly, even on a day 
to day basis sometimes. 1.3.x is in many ways not at all like 1.2.x and moves 
further and further apart with every release. While 1.3.3 has been a tidying 
of 1.3.2 and adding new features, 1.3.4 promises to be yet another major 
change of how things work in multiple areas.

The simplest way I found initially to work out how something worked was to 
find a GUI string like a menu item and search, and then follow the code 
paths. These days reading the header files/doxygen produced docs is a lot 
better than before though.
