OK, got it.  So then, you are writing something similar to javadoc, but 
just putting it in a separate document rather than the source code.  IE, 
the plan is to write reference documentation rather than user manuals. 
(I guess it makes sense; there are already a number of user manuals, for 
events, widgets, etc.)
