Definitly no!

See Ralph Johnson's thoughts on documentation
of June 1999 http://minnow.cc.gatech.edu/squeak/736

We need for example a good explanation about MorphicEvent handling

Having a tutorial about using ProtoMorph for learning about Smalltalk
reflection and learning about the Morph hierarchy is helpful as well.

I agree that we need more unit tests as they provide an automatic
to find out about inconsistences!
