The documentation at this point is a mixture of information generated
many years ago along with variously contemporary updates and additions.
There is a sprinkling of an informal style here and there.
If anything, I have to be on the lookout for what I write being a bit
stiff and lifeless in my desire to be as precise and accurate as I can,
and of course there are misstatements and typos I'm sure (bugs if you
want to call them that).
Christoph Schäfer isn't a native-speaker, but he's good enough to
sometimes correct my fractured English. Sometimes "perfectly good
English" (is there such a thing?) may not convey clearly what one is
supposed to do.

I have been trying to see if we can have the docs develop something of a
consistent style, but just as the software is constantly changing, there
is never a point at which the docs can remain in some final state.

As Alexandre says, let us know where you have questions or see problems.
