Indeed that is often the fate of any documantation, sadly. I suppose we
can only hope that
a) it would help get things going in the right dorection
b) get re-read later and remind people just what it was originally
supposed to do (sometimes gets forgotten...)
c) finally gets rewritten to reflect how to make good use of the end

Golly, sounds like real engineering doesn't it :-)
