I did use the word "commendable" in there somewhere... ;-)  These days,
I usually withhold my more blatant and gushing enthusiasm until such
time as additional folks step up to help whip these documents into
fighting shape.  Looking at our contributor list[1], I see a lot of
names that popped up for roughly five minutes on the mailing list and
then were never seen again.

Would you be interested in joining in the effort[2]?  Your enthusiasm
could be contagious if followed up with some elbow grease!  :-)
